Anyone want to talk about the pros and cons or should we wait for another day?

No! They both came in and changed transformers.Something else nocked them out of the race. The 22 went out with a broken prop, the 24 went out with a broken V drive. Went replaced the MSD with a mag(really I did) and it knocked us out. Truthfully, that was my fault, not the mags. The point is, 2 magas failed at the enduro. A few more thru the season as well. We never lost an MSD during the season.

We lost a transformer at Burley. Mallory Mag V w/ 28900 transformer. The problem was a bad plug wire ( loose end from MSD ) .
They act like a HEI, if it can't send the spark to the plugs, it backs up into the ign system ?
I can think of something positive to say about mags that I've heard others say,
"They're simple, they only have one wire"

Sirs and others that might be interested in this stuff,
Magnetos have been around a very long time and modern mags are better than old stuff but many things still remain the same. They are typically limited in the amount of spark energy available.
A typical magneto fires 4 plugs in positive polarity and 4 plugs in negative polarity. Without beating that pony to death not all plugs get the same level of spark energy (4 are down about 25+%) from the git-go. Just the nature of the the magneto critter.
IF you have to have a battery on board anyway and IF you have the courage to run an alternator (for distance events) then running a modern type CD (capacitive discharge) ignition is much more forgiving than the lower spark energy levels of a magneto.
There is much more that could be compared in an A vs B outline format, but it takes too much effort to do so.....
For blown fuel applications, the MSD mags are probably superior.
For almost anything else, I highly recommend MSD ignition stuff for the electrical energy at the plugs.
