[TCML] Exploding capacitor help

It would be helpful if you give the part number of your capacitors, and the specifications of your multi-mini bank configuration (e.g. two rows of ten-capacitor strings). In a good cap you should be looking for polypropylene with metal foil or film-foil build. Also, check out Kevin's helpful advice on capacitor specifications at http://www.teslacoildesign.com/. Don't worry, I spent over a hundred dollars on a cap bank that I later figured out is not ideal.
Good luck,
Etienne D.
