Get a stiffer spring. Go to TSC and get (I think) a number 175 spring. A little stiffer and a little shorter.

Another way is to grind some of the fly weights down so that they are lighter.

You can also work over the throttle linkage so that you can push the governor arm further and get the stop screw to touch.

Don't "wire" it or connect it solid. That's a real safety issue.

i took some allthread (threded rod) and bent it to go where the spring goes. make sure to make it when the throttle is ideling. or not full thrttle. so it will not rev up when you start it. this will make it so you can have as many RPMS as you want. Hope this helps,

Pulling for fun, It wont be much fun when someone gets hurt from your thoughtless post.
I sure hope people are smart enough NOT to listen and do this.

Good way to DIE, & take a few spectators with you! Very dangerous, the flyeheel will explode, like a hand grenade, at some point not super far above stock rpm. Thats why the rules limit this. There should be safer ways to get to 20% over, allowed by the rules, be safe & good luck :-)
