I'm just under the impression a hotter motor helps attack the corners faster. ? My buddy's VDF runs a 10.5 and it seems just right. I should make it clear though I haven't even ran my VDF yet since the bills seem to be coming out of nowhere. Oh well, if I feel I do have to go 10.5, the LRP X12 10.5 sure would look sexy in a gold VDF!
