Points are problematic, and electronic ignition is more reliable and probably gives a stronger spark.

Points style ingnition tends to break down at high RPM, they arn't good over 6000 rpm even if they are correctly adjusted.

I remembered why the spark is stronger with electornic - the points are why the balast resistor is needed, the coil runs a 9v except for starting to stop the points burning out, but swap over to electronic igniton and you can remove the resistor and feed 12v to the coil, so the spark is quite a bit stronger.
