turn up the rpm on 5 hp b&s engine ????

Any suggestions for getting a little more out of a 5 hp Briggs. Sorry but no id can be found on the motor, it is an old one but still runs hard. Just looking for a little more kick for the grandkids go cart! Any suggestions are appreciated.

shorten up the governor spring a little at a time, ( remove, cut, bend end to hook back in., re-attach.) should increase rpm, but don't go too much & blow it up. (LOL)
