Default Setup: "square up" - what does it mean?

If someone said a higher roll center in the rear will help the car to square up better, what does that mean?

They probably mean to square up for a jump (hit the jump straight on)

higer roll center means lower positioned camber link. All in all it means when you come out of a corner and are on the throttle the rear end doesn't drift or kickout, it locks down to the track, basically having more traction. You definitely want the rearend to square up.

Thanks for the quick replies guys

I knew to lower the link on the tower to raise the RC but, never really knew what people are talking about when they said, square up.
