Please note that I insist not on super low roll centers.
I insist now only on super low inner lower balls.
With such balls you have the widest window for roll centers/camber gain settings.
The increased camber gain is very important on asphalt as it helps to get more traction in turns and the traction rolling problems are far away on the most asphalt tracks.
You can easy watch the next in the roll center calculator:
In case of you move the lower inner balls more and more down but keep the roll centers at the desirable constant level ( it can be even not super low) by means of the top link adjustments - you will see the increasing of the camber gain.
Let's try the next thing during your paractice on the track : install the roll centers that you prefer earlier and remove some shims from under lower inner balls but adjust the top balls to return the roll centers on the previous position.
It is not easy without the roll center calculator so please use the empiric rules for our suspension:
1. The removal of each 1mm shim from under lower
inner ball needs the removal of 2,75mm shim from under upper
inner ball to keep the roll center level.
2. The removal of each 1mm shim from under lower inner ball lowers the roll center on ~ 2,4mm.
3. After the adding of the identical shims simultaneously under inner and outer upper
balls the roll center remains on the same level.
