if you raise the engine you won't be raising the roll centre, you will raise centre of gravity height. roll centre is located by front suspension geometry.

Sure you got the front end square?

Are you using stock bushings on the golfclubs?

I got 14 1/2" . will raising it loosen front end . or do start thinking about another area . 2nd year still trying to make it faster, and the loose nut behind the wheel. 1/2 way through season not having a satifiying night yet. I'm not that greedy really.
