The answer is that it depends on a number of factors as the kiln itself is a variable in the process.
I'd say that having 3" or more between the piece & elements is preferred. Firing closer to elements (especially top ones), slowing down the initial rate of heat could be a good thing. Even more so, if it is a blank w/ multiple styles/colors.
I've seen drop out pieces made w/ our smallest drop ring mold in the Benchtop 16s that were elevated more than 2" - starting w/ a thicker blank than shown in the video. The kiln shelf isn't elevated as high as what we do in GL24s & there are no elements in the top of the kiln. Not so much room, but it's possible.
