I believe that it is the LOW roll center that causes excessive body roll. If the roll center is raised there is less mass rotating over the roll center, thus making the car handle better. Picture roll center as a lever. The longer the lever the easier it is to roll the weight. A low roll center has a long lever...high roll center has a shorter lever. If you were to plot the front roll center on many cars it would be below ground level!
