Same happened to me. Busted poison skirt and I drove it for 3 weeks before it gave out.

If you do plan on driving it like that it will scar up the inside of the piston wall and you will have to bore it out to smooth the walls out and if it scars it up too bad you might not have enough piston wall left to bore it out and it could cause some trouble.
