THe LTR caps with NST's are very good, but they won't work well
with a static gap, a sync rotary is needed. Resonant caps can run at
120 bps with a static gap, but the transformer may be destroyed
because the gaps often need to be quite wide to give strong results.
The technique I posted in the past is for use with a sync gap. I've
since changed the writeup to include LTR operation. My set up is for
obtaining the absolute max performance from an NST. Folks often
prefer to to push a system less vigorously.
