Default traction roll dor dummies

hi guys;

Can anybody explain to me what is traction roll? I know that it happens on high grip scenarios, but I don't know how to recognize it. If you have any video of this, please share here.

thanks and regards

Eduardo

Easy, when going into a corner with a lot of grip the car will push on the outside front wheel, if the grip is to highe it will flip over, thats traction roll

Dude, yes. The car flips usually always landing on its lid and slidding. And usually it will be just that one corner on the track that does it. And usually it will happen every lap until you change your car. It could be a change as simple is going from a hard rear sway bar to a soft rear sway bar to cause the car to roll more through the corner. Or you may have to go to harder tires. Just depends. But like everyone here is saying "you will defnately know". Let us know when you get your first traction roll, K.
