there was a diagram showing the inaccuracy of a drop weight machine, but it showed that the maximum tension achieved was the tension you set as the reference and any angle other than horizontal the tension pulled would be less than the set tension. so as long as you set the reference tension less than the highest recommended tension you should be fine. only time i can see it going over is if you force the drop weight lever to go lower than gravity will take it.
