    Every car has body roll... I doubt they meant the car is on blocks and doesnt give any, but im sure there is considerably less roll with springs being so much stiffer, both front and rear. Think about this: Youre jumping on a trampoline. it gives when you come back down, to give you spring for when you go back up. if it didnt, youd crumble, like landing on concrete after a 10' drop. Apply this idea horizontally, not vertically. no body roll and the WHOLE car would roll left if you're turning right, and right if turning left. the body roll is acting in the same sense as your trampoline, having some "give" so you dont "crumble" or flip the whole car in this case. correct?

    If you're upset over someone elses opinions then the issue isn't with the person giving the opinion but rather yourself for taking it personal.

    It's not hugely heavier than the outgoing model, depending on what weight numbers you look at.

    Agreed. Sound deadening=extra weight in my enthusiast car. Good thing my bugeye doesn't have any.
