Does anyone have a file of a twister they would be willing to share, or a link to somewhere I can learn how to create one?

thanks

Check this book:

Lightwave 6.5 Magic by Dan Ablan

There is a chapter just on that.

This should be a good starting point for you.

then adding some HV to it should do the trick.

ok great - got that done, now I need to figure out how to make the twister spin faster - anyone know which dial to tweak to get this to happen?

thanks

Try boosting the wind power, and or the particles velocity.

Not in front of LightWave just gessing.
