Hi Peter,

Nice to hear from ya! I check your site often to see the new cool things 
that your doing.
Toroids are 37 feet apart, spark length I suppose is longer depending on 
path. I intentionally didn't add breakout points between the two because 
I wanted the arcs to 'organically' find their own way. First two days of 
Coachella I had them in phase with each other so that they would flirt 
coyly away from one other, then on the final day I upped the power and 
put them out of phase so they'd finally meet.

And yes, I replaced the 1N4007 stacks with ones built from 1N5408.

Just got the truck unloaded from the Stagecoach festival, so when I rest 
up a bit I'll post some ot the video.
