A special exhaust for more power.
And change the thoothed wheels.
A bigger 1 in the front (engine side)
A smaller 1 in the back (axle side)
Then take a K&N air filter.
Maybe you can remove the electric starting system and replace it by a kickstart system for less weight.

Re: what i need to race

the first thing I would do is go 1 tooth smaller on the front sprocket to make it quicker comming out of the corners and down the straights, you'll never get topped out in 5th gear on an MX track anyways. Then I'd start saving for wider a arms , a wider axle and better shocks, and an exhaust and air filter. All the power in the world won't do you any good if you can't get it to the ground, and the wider suspension would make it easier to keep your speed up in the corners, and over the rough sections on the track.
