I am building a double triangulated 4 link for an atv, and I'm having a hard time understanding how roll center height affects the the stability of a vehicle. I don't want to make this thing more unstable than it has to be, given its already high CG and short track. My current design has a roll center 4" under the CG, from what I understand, this will cause the chassis to lean away from the turn. Will this chassis lean make it more inclined to tip away from the turn? Would getting the roll center higher than the CG add stability? Thank you.
