I dug up this post in the archives. I know there is more information in
the archives if one goes searching.
As I said when I suggested his TC a week or two ago as an exception to this
Zo sweet spot, Marc used a lot of atypical design parameters with this TC
that may have lead to the extraordinary performance he claimed.

Steve, Paul, all,
Someone mentioned the other day that Marc's coil tended
to give extraordinary spark length results. I looked at Paul's site but
didn't see evidence of this. Does anyone have evidence of
its outperformance? Does anyone know what breakrate
it ran at?

Marc's 3k turn coil is documented under the label mm3p in
At the secondary resonant frequency of 38.4kHz, we have
Lee = 352mH, Cee = 44.7 pF, so Zo = 88.7k ohms.
