You can usually run a static gap NST with caps about 50% higher than what
the resonant value is. With a carefully timed static gap you can go to
about twice the resonant value. The LTR value given in MMCalc2 is the
maximum size cap you can run with a sync gap and all. In may cases, you
will be running somewhat less. It's a little hard to say what is the "just
right" value for a given coil. I often suggest to just keep adding
capacitance until you get the best spark length. A cap with many
selectable strings is prefect for that.
