more low to mid-range power ?

I went to glamis this weekend and got 1 ride in, I noticed that my rhino could use alil morer power in the bottom end. I was wondering what would be the best way to go about this.

I have the normal bolt on like exhaust,intake, cdi bored out carb and I sheave also I wanted to throw in that my rhino is a four seater. Should I change the spings and weights and if so what's the best set-up for the mods and weight of my rhino. Thanks guys

You need a duner kit, lighter rollers and higher lb spring.

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

I was wondering what the weights do, like the heavier the weight the more bottom end or how does that work. On the springs the heavier spring makes it hit harder ? So with the set-up above is that going to give it a big diff. ? Finally is that something I should have a shop do or is it pretty easy ? Thanks for the input
