Default Torquing related to BH and DL

I would really appreciate any and all educating me/giving answers to the following question:

1. Those with a shorter DL, shooting a bow with a shorter BH, such as 27" and 6.25", would or would notlikely have less problems with torquing, then a longer DL and shorter BH, such as 30" and 6.25"?

I have a 26 or so inch draw with a 6 inch brace height. Personally, I want all the brace height I can get with my short draw, although it sucks for hunting because of the clothes and everything.

The further the arrow travels with the string before it leaves the bow, the more opportunity it has to be affected by torque. For instance, I shoot 33" with an 8" brace which keeps the arrow on the string for at least 25" during the power stroke. That is 4 3/4" more travel distance with the string than someone with a 27" draw and 6.25" brace. So I'd say the shorter draw with lower brace would have less problems with torque, given equal shooting form.

People with shorter draw lengths usually have a more forgiving set up. We can shoot shorter brace height and shorter axle to axle bows better than someone with a much longer draw length. On paper anyway, it really boils down to how good your form is.

If you look at a lot of the records set in archery from what I understand most were set by people with shorter draw lengths.
