Great vid! I'm a little concerned that on the front end compression may add camber which was a draw back of the Elise's geometry as well.

In my view the camber change with front compressiob only appears when:

1. There's a (major) angle difference between the upper and lower wishbone.

2. There's a (major) lenght difference between the upper and lower wishbone.

Both are hard to analyse from a video but it looks like both pointe aren't there. Beside that i asume the used one wishbone for the upper and lower one due to keeping the costs low. If thats is true both have the same lenght and angle, which can be a little off due to initial camber and tolerance in production, but i suspect the change of camber with front compression.

Camber change is imo the main reason why they chose the double wishbone configuration.
There's not much 'static' camber needed (good for straights) and camber increases during cornering which improves handling.
But I hope camber can be increased to eliminate the usual safety understeer setup.
