You can work out the front and rear roll centres using the calculator - save these values... Then apply a bit of trigonometry and consider the line of the roll center inclination to be the hypotenuse.

a = Subtract the rear roll centre height from the front roll center height
b = the wheelbase
A = tan-1 of b / a

roll center inclination = A

This would be a useful and addition to the calculator in the future... I'll add it to the list of enhancements.
