The roll center is usually very low, so that is unlikely to happen. Lifting the roll center wouldn't make it track straight when going over bumps, so it has to be low.

The roll center can shift when the car corners, due to suspension geometry:
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
