10 inch plate is way to much for a vking and with that 15" mid you could probably get away with a 4" plate.

If it was a vulture or a Vegas I could see a 10" plate for sure but way overkill for a vking.

Also, start with the prop shaft even with the pad seeing that you have a lwp and adjust from there. I know a few guys that end up an inch above the pad.
