I do know what would happen. Nothing...
Since the two toroids are at the same potential (voltage) there is no field
between them, no electrical stress, etc. It is almost like a Farday cage
protecting the area between them. Chech out the voltage stress diagram at:
This is the volts per inch of your coil. Note that the area between the
toroids is dead. So save your money on this one ;-))
