I don't know it all but this is a bit of info I have on it...
*ROLL CENTER/CAMBER LINKS*
- A long link gives a lot of body roll in turns. It feels as if the body is willing to keep on rolling, until in the end, the springs prevent it from rolling any further. The car has more grip in corners, especially the middle part. But if there already alot of traction, the long camber links can slow the car down in turns.
- A short link makes it so that the blody doesn't roll as far, it's tendency to roll drops off as it rolls. It feels as though the car generates a little less grip.
More Parallel Link
(more parallel to the lower arm
)- A parallel link gives a little more roll than an angled one. It feels very smooth and consistent as the body rolls in turns.
(distance between arm and link is smaller on the inside
)- An angled link makes it feel as if the car has a tendency to center itself (leveling, no roll), other than through the springs or anti-roll bar. It gives a little more initial grip, and steering into corners. It makes it very easy to 'throw' the car. The body rolls a little less than with parallel links. It's possible to use softer settings for damping spring rate than with parallel links, without destabilizing the car.
Beware that you should always keep an eye on the balance of your car; large differences in roll center front vs. rear will make the car feel less consistent and less confidence inspiring.
- The front rolls and dives more in turns. Lots of steering in mid-corner. Could make the car hook.
- The front feels very stable. A little more turn-in, but has less steering in mid-corner.
- More rear traction in turns, and coming out of them. Rear end slide is very progressive, not unpredictable at all. Make sure that there's enough rear camber though, or you could lose rear traction in turns.
- The rear feels very stable. It breaks out later and more suddenly, but if it does, the slide is more controllable. It makes the front dive in a little more, which results in more steering, especially when braking.
More Angled Front
- Turn-in is very aggressive. The front feels as if it wants to roll less than the rear.
More Angled Rear
- The rear end is rock-solid while turning in. It feels very confidence inspiring.
How's that for a little 101
