Roll center

Post by zdrafko51 » November 7th, 2019, 5:54 pm

Hello,
did anyone ever try to measure roll center of a car and try to lover or rise it.

I am considering to make my in the front at about 150 mm and rear around 300 mm, my center of gravity is around 500 mm, of coarse at the front CG is a bit lover and rear is a bit higher. Will my car benefit of higher roll center?

Thank you!

Hello
So far as yet, no i haven't, but i have designed a watts linkage setup for my Capri which will allow me to adjust the roll centre.
The front suspension setup i have already completed with adjustable tie rods and should also give me some adjustment, but we will see.

Yes raising the roll centre up front could help, but it really does depend on the geometry of the setup and anti roll setup you have
