I was wondering more about the slot forward of the gear leg, if there is any benefit to partially cover that considering gear leg flex? In particular wondering if the opening forward does anything to the lower cowl pressure in inhibiting a flow out the rear of the cowl? Carl, sounds like you have found leaving the forward slot alone helps with cooling?

There isnít much open space forward of my gear leg. Could probably be covered with bubble gum.

Just to make sure folks understand the difference from other Vans nose gear models-----(not sure about the 14) RV 10 leg does not "flex"----it pivots on the attachment points at the engine mount, and the entire leg moves up/down-------thus the slot to allow the motion.
