If it was a lb for lb swap, that would sound a whole lot better than swapping out maybe 700 lbs or so of ICE engine and transmission for 1000+ lbs of battery plus another 300+ lbs of motor + inverter. IOW, while all of the battery weight and its location helps pull the CG height down, it's working against itself in providing more mass in the mass x moment arm roll moment math. IOW, it's only a net benefit (not a pure gain), and the greater mass comes with other costs (think total vehicle mass and vehicle moments of inertia here).It does indeed. But of course some of those things that are designed in to suspension systems are there to resolve the issue of roll. If that roll motion is not there to the same extent in the first place then it is possible to have less of a compromise on other suspension configuration. If you have to stick a huge ARB on a car to control roll then you will get unwanted secondary effects to that.
BTW, I did watch your video link. Just to show you that I tend to look for different things, I saw right away what Porsche did with their wheel and tire package to crutch the impact on handling coming from its 2.5 ton weight.
