and if the roll center is low, increasing the front bar's stiffness might actually bring a little more inside tread onto the ground by keeping the body from shifting to the outside as it rolls. But it looks to me like the car's not under full throttle, at any rate. We'd have to know the position of the roll centers front and rear though, to figure this out better. I THINK the rake would be less if the car were accelerating, but I'm not sure.

A strut tower might also help this, but of course that's illegal in a stock class.
