inlets as in where the fuel comes in, if you run an engine like that too harsh then the pistin expands and catches on the fuel inlets

well the piston runs up and down the bore, but halfway up the bore are a couple of holes (these are the fuel inlets as they are a little non complicated engine unlike a real car engine) if the piston expands too much it catches on these holes anf fcuks evrythin up!!!
thanks what u meant

Why do you say they don`t last long?
If proper maintence is done they will last for years
