 ```>OK Peter, If the magnetic field around a wire is equal to the permeability of free space times the current all divided by 2 time Pi times the radius of the wire, how does changing to resistor wire increase the magnetic field so as to get better inductance? Answer that and THEN we'll be learnin' LOL. I would like to hear an explanation from a physicist on this subject. When a wire carries a current there is a magnetic field around it. The inductor clamp on the timing light picks up that field. So, . . . does this mean the current carried by racing wires is small? To small to produce a "big enough" magnetic field? That doesn't make sense. Tim Collins Midland, MI 1966 AH Sprite ```
