As you can see the subsequent change in RC is very different from one to the other (and in opposite directions)...

Actually I'm just starting to wrap my head around this roll-center stuff. Unfortunately I forget this info just as quickly as I post it. Drawing pictures is the best way for me to visualize and commit it to memory.

I'm a professional CAD draftsman and rather quick at this kinda stuff...
