I have decided to go with smaller cap at this time and "pumpupthevolume" in the future. Increasing
the break rate is well within my grasp if needed. I have 8 positions on the RSG currently and can
add 8 more electrodes at will with this particular design. To go beyond that I'll need another

Malcolm, you never cease to amaze me! This is one of the reasons I became set on building at this
proportion and power level. I wanted a system I could manipulate without a lot of "limitations"
(i.e. limits to spark potential). I will build a maggy in the future with all intentions of using
many of the components used on this coil. For the present, I'm set on getting the puppy "barking"
first. Great foresight!
