Would it be worthwhile to deliberately reduce your power input (via the
variac setting) to shorten the sparks to a certain measureable length?
I have the same space constraints which is why I usually limit my 
sparks to 42" or so.  Then keep your power input constant.... and 
test the various gap configurations.

OK, I understand, more tests are needed.
