RE: Maxwell 37667 dies interestingly...thoughts?

I have a couple of these that are seemingly fairly good. If as stated these
are rated at 50% duty, are two in series likely to survive this senerio
paralleled by a CDC .01uf bank and Panasonic .02uf (6) banks for 2x LTR
operation? If so, what would be the max suggested wattage at say 300bps?
Not much "bang" for the buck :-^)

I am retiring this 8" coil soon but I would like to push it a bit since I
have finished an ASRG and am soldering up a CDC .08uf MMC.

Actually, the spec for this model lists a maximum continuous rep. rate
of 500 PPS.  I think the 35kV rating is just a bit light for the
application.  Maybe the 20A RMS rating is low for a pig-powered high BPS
system as well.
