What still disappoints me is that I had it throwing off 34" sparks very

If I were you I would concentrate on getting 2 beefy perfectly matched mots in there and if you were getting 34" with unmatched mots and various losses, who knows you could top the current record. That is often what happens though. You want more until you push the coil or component to destruction. Sounds like your on the right path but you might have to settle for a medium that you and your coil are happy with. :)
Good luck and good job,
