[TCML] Re:Pros and cons

Quick & dirty analysis.
Damping of the secondary oscillations of the high peak power tesla coils seems to indicate quality factors Q=10-15 due to spark loading dissipation.From that,geometry of your coil and the data you kindly provided some things can be concluded.Althought Q-factor for LCR circuits with nonlinear load (ie. sparks) can not be correctly defined,it is my assumption in the aproximation limit analysis for tesla coil that does not matters much.Setting Q~10,Prms>6 kW,n=58 pps,number of "ring up cycles"=6.5,Csec~80 pF results in the output potential of your coil Usec>800 kV.I don't exclude possibility that this is really a 1000 kV tesla coil.
BTW,bang 74 J in the primary is somewhat misleading here.This is DRSSTC and most likely the coil is given well over 100 J per impulse.

 32kHz, 200µS, Havent measured input power, but below 11.5kVA, due to 16A fuses holding up. 
Primary current topping up at 3kA, so voltage across 1.5µF cap = 9950V, bang 74Joule
