The THICKNESS of the record is what changes the VTA.
Some people make the mistake of setting the tracking force too light.
More records are damaged, IMO, by the mistracking caused by setting the tracking force TOO LIGHT than by any other thing.
When in doubt, always use a little more tracking force than you have if you hear distortion. You would have to at least double the tracking force to damage the record, but too light is a real problem.
