The 135 is my personal favourite, and the local money board for OR home office area folks. All of these fine folks have you pointed in the right direction (upwind ). The Makos are admittedly not upwind machines compared to your regular rectangle TT as Rudo says and they do require a bit different technique.
Keep the board speed up and ride a bit flatter (as previously mentioned). As you build up speed start to lean back a bit and engage the rail. Try to maintain traction and power in the turns as best you can - starting from scratch means you’ll lose a chunk of ground in lighter conditions, no way around that.
Hope that helps!
