my answer: raising the rear or front "top inner mount point" will give you a lower roll center. where as lowing this link will give you a higher roll center.
the trick is to get the RC (roll center) of the car close to the chassis CG (center of gravity). the closer the the RC to the CG the less body roll will be exhibited , car will then corner "flat", allowing it to obtain and maintain good corner speed.
i suggest you grab a copy of XXX Main's Chassis Setup Guide by Martin Crisp, the guide covers all aspects of chassis setup inclusing roll center, and camber link adjustments. i have found the guide to be a very valuable tool...
on my 414worlds i do run extra spacing on the rear link and the result is more grip, i have also got rid of the front end anti dive (as in kit, for smooth tracks only), and added some kick up, this settles the car into corners, but gave me a little more steering on mid-exit. (depends on track as per usual). no front sway bar either.
i run modified classes, if running stock setup may be a little different...
