By cutting the shoes you can change a point when the clutch will engage. The lighter the shoes are the later it will engage meaning the RPMs will be higher which usually means a quicker take off. some people would drill little holes in them others would shave off a little of each shoe. Don't forget there's no way back, so shave off very little at a time and make sure it's the same on each shoe.

Or if you have the money buy a Centex clutch.

If you are new and you are not looking for the very last edge over other racers I wouldn't worry about it too much. There's tons of stuff you can do to improve your car.

Also it depends what engine you have. Not every engine will be ok with such a clutch adjustment.
