Rhalves Bonzai Slalom Racing Tips?

I've been thinking of entering the Rhalves Bonzai, which is like a banked slalom.
Never done one of these races before & was wondering what tips do you guys recommend for maximum speed/advantage?
I currently ride a billy goat with a stance of 12/ - 12. Should I attempt to adjust my stance&practice towards a more alpine stance? Any specific board tuning for day of the race?

Suggestions welcome

Did you do this race? Some friends are debating on going to it..... Looks fun.

Who wants to do this?

Racers run a forward stance for a reason. Although you being comfortable is the most important aspect of any stance. Saying that, I recently went from my back foot duck to a +2.
