Nitrous throttle switch position

Has anyone experimented with having the shot come in at any other time besides at the very end of WOT?(throttle switch) say 2/3 throttle etc. I've always ran mine at the very end and all of the instructions you read say "very end". Just wondering what happens when you have it come in earlier. Of course, I'm too paranoid to try it myself. Also what happens if you set it to come in at 3,000rpm(rpm activated switch) and you're not at WOT?

Haven't been running nitrous that long, so I need advise from experienced users.

At less than WOT it causes high loading which can cause parts breakage. Many racers hit the nitrous when the car comes off the line, but there at WOT. I`m sure there`s other varibles i`m not familiar with that also cause breakage.
