I would like to design a TC that runs at 60Hz so that it could run without caps. Do ya'll think thats possible?

That would be a regular old HV transformer...

If you add caps so it's resonant, you'd have a resonant transformer, which is used in HV testing.

Many years back, a megavolt X-ray system was built using a coil resonant at 180 Hz (driven from 3 phase 60Hz).
