Your question is really general. What is it you want to improve? The turning radius? Response? Also what Jakes did you go with? Can you post a pic of your lifted cart? What tires and wheels do you have on it?

What about the radius?

Okay, I am going to assume that by by 'a plain Jakes 6 or 7 inch' you mean a spindle lift? Jakes incorporate a couple of inches of stretch with each spindle lift to give more tire clearance. Resulting in a longer wheelbase which will increase your turning radius. Check your steering 'stop' adjustments to see that you are turning as sharp as possible.

also you widened the cart with the lift and tires.
I cant remember off the top of my head on the jakes. I think it lengthens the steering arm. makes it easier to steer but makes turning radius bigger

Be mindful of over reving the engine without the Gov. Some guys install a tach after disabling the Gov.
