Alfa GTV TB -96

Are you talking about a strut bar? This does only stiffen the body, reducing flex, making the vehicle more responsive. You can compare it to putting on harder bushings (superflex), or mounting a roll cage. A strut bar can't really affect body roll, since is has no connection to the springs, dampers and wheels.

When driving on a track, changing direction quickly, it is necessary to reduce body roll since you need quick reaction. This might however not increase the maximum corner sped of a GTV, due to understeer that rear wheel passive steering is suppose to reduce when the body is rolling.

Another thing is body pitch when breaking, harder springs could reduce this.

I guess that the front bars of early GTVs (TS & TB), 155, 145/146 are all the same -> appr. 21mm and linked to the front wishbones. I chose the one from 146 model, it helps a lot - the car goes more "flat" around the corners. Unfortunately there are no stronger bars for the rear end...(a long time ago Eibach had a set for the GTV but they are out of production).
