RE: [TCML] racing arcs

Thanks Gary. 

Somebody on the list told me that when I posted my results of my new SRSG 
and the racing sparks issue. I tried to find the note in my personal 
archives but either it was deleted or I forgot to save it.

Either that or I misunderstood. To many strikes to the head!

Hi Dan,

Regarding your racing sparks with the sync RSG -

That doesn't make sense.  The inductance of the NST secondary in no way 
affects the resonance of the TC primary or secondary, and I can see no way 
for the NST secondary inductance to vary, based on timing of the gap.
