There is nothing better to understand what the mechanics of traction rolling are than RC Crew Chief software... I use to be the traction rolling king at 360v2, but after watching a few of Bobw's videos, I stopped traction rolling for good... DJ got it right with going slightly softer, but maintaining droop at 2mm or less with low roll centers is extremely important. Also thicker oil in the shocks will make the car lazy and help to not traction roll, but it can't be taken into extremes or else you will lose too much responsiveness... Last, but not least is tire wall flex that can be solved with CA glue.... In the end, balancing responsiveness to track condition is key....
