This all depends on the car's roll centre, static COG and camber of the wheel at or near full suspension compression. With a high degree of camber, there is less chance of the outside tyre digging in and hooking the car into a roll. On a car with a high static COG it is possible that the COG will lower in a roll condition.Originally posted by Hypedonrc
sway bars keep the two front/rear tires close to the same extension. Thus keeping the center of gravity lower, so it won't role over on it's side as easy.
HowStuffWorks actually has it backwards. A sway bar REDUCES traction. Increasing or adding a swar bar makes the car more responsive, but at the cost of traction. The bar prevents weight from transfering to the outside wheel that needs it.Originally posted by olds97_lss
Well, this is from howstuffworks.com:
Roll is bad. It tends to put more weight on the outside tires and less weigh on the inside tires, reducing traction. It also messes up steering. What you would like is for the body of the car to remain flat through a turn so that the weight stays distributed evenly on all four tires.
