Traction roll is when you have too much traction in the front or the rear of the car that makes your car flip over in the middle of a corner.

Traction roll is usually a result of using too large tires, too high ride height, too much droop, too much camber or too soft suspension that the body rolls too much in the corner.

Ways to reduce traction roll is to use as low a ride height as possible to keep the CG low, use smaller tires to limit the side wall tire flex and keep the roll center high, reduce the negative camber, add or harden sway bars to stiffen and to limit droop.
Thanks alot!!
