Tricks to gain speed

I am new to this whole Rhino thing, but I have done the 300 miler from barstow to Laughlin, and can say if you ever get the chance do it, its awesome, I was a passenger in my buddies Rhino, and it motivated me to purchase one myself, I now have a 06 660 Rhino with longtravel suspension, and am looking for some advice to pick up the pace, my buddy has the Eldelbrock carb, air intake, and CDI, and he pretty much runs away from all of us, I am thinking to get the same set up, except I need something extra to pull away from him, I am thinking a DRY Clutch, (expensive) but its all about winning, with this guy, does anyone have any tricks for added horse power without having to tear into the reliablility of the engine! I am currently having a race cage made to lower my CG, and I think the dry clutch might do the trick, what do you guys think?

get a fcr 41 carb, ron woods exhaust and a cdi and you'll spank him, that edelbrock is shit for a carb.

another quick, inexpensive way to gain speed is by getting rid of that heavy ass bed. while your race cage is being built ask the builder to weld in bedside supports so you can mount the plastic bedsides.

That is exactly what I am having done, just the rear fenders, will be attached with a front and rear tire holder, and I am also moving my fuel cell down between the driver and passenger feet for better CG

I have heard that you can have the stock carb modified and it works as good if not better than the aftermarket carbs, anyone agree or disagree, or is this just a sales pitch to rip me off
