Stop agonizing over it and just get the Course Ti's. If you like the RCs you will love the Course Ti. It's basically the same idea, just executed better (more edge grip, smoother feel), and the additional length will allow for more stability. Not that you're likely to push either past their speed limit in Virginia.
Yeah, it's a bit more forgiving than a full on race ski, but it also turns in a reasonable distance, which is important on small hills if you want to make more than 2 turns in a run.
I skied Vollkls for years, but after trying the Course Ti I've been converted. Just buy 'em. You won't regret it.
