Multiple rolls on vertical lines take a lot of practice.  You 
need to learn to fly very smoothly and very accurately.  Any 
slight wobble or any slight wing drop will cost you roll time.  
In order to get the maximum out of the plane will take years.  I 
remember when I got my S-2A, I thought it is impossible to do a 
full roll on a 45 degree line.  A couple of years ago I flew 
Unlimited in the same plane and did very well.  I managed to do 
2 full rolls and fly off.  The more gas you put through the 
engine, the more you can roll :-)
