I understand how the capacitors filter out dirty voltage and I am nearly 100% confident I had it wired up properly however it seemed to work satisfactory without them after adjusting the sensitivity to account for dirty voltage. I'll do some tests tomorrow dry firing and with some paint RT'ing; should be seriously interesting...
It always seems to work when you have it on the bench..
Sometimes it's good to be Evil.
