You set a high goal, G/L with the Season!

And yep, not in a momentum car anymore - more power & braking where needed - and LESS than you hope to be able to use.

IIRC, last year you tended to push Slaloms faster while going through, eventually getting behind the line & spinning out for the bad runs.

FWIW - in Ski racing you want to be finishing the turn as you go by the back side of the pole (cone), otherwise you get behind and can't turn sharp enough for the next one. Similar early start should help, gives you more time for a better line than being forced to turn sharp AT the cone.
