Running in the lower hole would add more give at the initial hit as discussed. It's just something you can try and see if the car likes it. Video taping the tire with a good video camera that has high FPS so you can slow it down would be a lot of help diagnosing how it strikes.

Thanks John.
I'll try to talk my son into trying the lower hole next year. Our season just ended.
