For example fast abrasion or they can easier melt than the original Renault ones.

I've used them before in a standard engine and they have worked well enough, not entirely sure what make they are but he's more than likely taken a Tarribusi or Perfect Circle set and split them to sell seperately.
I''ve used both sets i mentioned beofre and they hold up well even on a very high boost/power engine

I actually bought a set of Tarabusi ones from a company in Glasgow,it was their last set, 99!!That was liners,rings and pistons.Made me wonder if 'they' can afford to sell them at that price why are other places selling them at 250+??
