Yes.

Not to be offensive, but if you build the car yourself, you will know the answer without doubts.

Hi guys, this is my understanding of roll centre, so PLEASE correct me if I am wrong :
RAISING THE ROLL CENTRE: To raise the roll centre you make adjustments so that the top arm/link is at a greater angle in relation to the lower arm. To do this LOWER the INSIDE pivot point (the pivot point located on the shock tower on most cars) of the top arm/link OR RAISE the OUTSIDE pivot point (located on the suspension upright on most cars) of the top arm/link. Raising the outside pivot point of the top arm can be achieved by adding shims to the upright.
As raising the roll centre reduces the distance between the centre of gravity and the roll centre, the car will roll less when cornering forces are applied. Because the car rolls less, the wheels will have less weight transferred to them and therefore have less traction.
Effects of raising the front roll centre: The front tyres will have less grip, and therefore the car my under steer at higher speeds (off power). However because less weight is being transferred from left to right, the car will react more quickly and feel more responsive in low speed corners.
Effects of raising the rear roll centre: The rear tyres will have less grip, and therefore the car will change direction faster and generally be more responsive.
LOWERING THE ROLL CENTRE: To lower the roll centre you make adjustments to the top arm/link so that it is more parallel (grammer?) in relation to the lower arm. To do this RAISE the INSIDE pivot point of the top arm/link OR LOWER the OUTSIDE pivot point of the top arm/link.
As lowering the roll centre increases the distance between the centre of gravity and the roll centre, the car will roll more when cornering forces are applied. Because the car rolls more the wheels will have more weight transferred to them, and therefore have more traction.
Effects of lowering the front roll centre: The front tyres will have more grip and therefore the car will have more off power steering. However because more weight is transferred from left to right the car will generally be less responsive (especially at low speeds).
Effects of lowering the rear roll centre: The rear tyres will have more grip and the car will have a tendency to under steer (on power). The car will react less responsively and will usually feel more docile and controllable.
As I said before, this is only my understanding of roll centre and am I by no means are suggesting that anyone else on this forum is wrong. If I am grossly misinformed please correct me.
I hope this helps...and makes sense
I agree!


By the way look closely.........Grammar is spelled this way!

I have the 3racing titanium pivot balls on my RRR but they're difference size compare to Mugen MTX3 & 4's pivot balls. If I remember correctly the head on RRR's pivot balls are a little bigger compare to mugen MTX3s & 4s. I also tried using my S710's titanium pivot balls (also by 3racing) but again.. it's not the same size... (too short). I ended up buying the mugen's...
