4) RCH below ground. More force than whats actually transferred passes through the spring/dampers, so that the wishbones is loaded unders "a negative" force. This means outer top wishbone for example is not under compresion, but under traction.
Yea but what is bad about it?
Just use strongers prings/dampers.

Write a spreadsheet that calculates your wheel loadings, elastic weight transfer, geometric weight transfer, jacking force, roll angle, wheel displacment and you will get a good idea of what changing the rc does to your car in steady state cornering, its the simplest way to understand the pro's and con's...

Oops, I was clearly missing this point.
One axis car just for simplification. If I have a negative jacking force pulling my car down, hence, compressing the springs. How can it be that the load of the tires is not increasing?I'm still missing a part.
Wouldn't a negative jacking force pull the car down enough for it to have a significant effect in CoG height? Which would be an improvement, but I think the downsides are much bigger.
