I have heard alot of people clipping the carb spring. What is this? where is this? and Why do you clip it?

Clipping the spring, is cutting off some of the coils from the spring inside the carb slide. What this does is to allow the slide to rise faster in the it's bore. This will make "throttling-up" happen a bit faster. This is somthing you should not attempt unless you are experienced with carb functions & reassembly.
Thanks MudNut I could probley do this but is the payoff worth it. How much more are you going to get out of your motor. I would think no more top end or torque could be had here, just throttle position would change? What am I missing?
