you can adjust the roll with side springs and they come in various strengths and the main shocker.

Roll is not a movement that should have damping on...... technically at any rate.
Roll is a force applied to a car rather more steadily then say, and in contrast to, the wheel frequencies realized through suspension parts where damping is of critical importance.

I have modded mine to take an associated side shock, WRC are looking into side damping.
I can remove my lipo by removing 4 screws, so same as f109
