Hi all,
         I think we could be on the verge of making some real 
progress in nailing down the merits of actual coil parameters. There 
is much to be done in the wall socket -> coil efficiency stakes. But 
if we look at the raw E x BPS vs spark length figures, we can start 
to see where the coils themselves might be improved. I think there is 
now a most fruitful area of research open to us. We might at last 
have a platform from which to examine L/C ratios and the like. It 
seems obvious now that when using current efficiency measurements we 
are floundering around in the dark (with an arc to light the way :)
