Stop mis-quoting me will you?! Who said anything about radical? I have 
my design in my head which is where it'll stay until I get the chance to 
trial it. It'll be self-supporting except where it transfers forces to 
the chassis that the chassis was designed to handle. I'm not in any 
hurry because I doubt very much there'll be much of a market to sell it 
to, any more than I have people beating down my door to buy my all-round 
4-pot brake and vented disc upgrade, which I know you'd be crowing about 
if you ever got the chance to drive a car equipped with it. It's 
something I wanted to do for myself originally.

I don't like the way Ed's reinforcement puts extra loading on the lower 
arm mounts. I don't like the way they are in single shear, I don't like 
putting a formed flat steel bar in compression, I don't like that bushes 
which were designed to be loaded radially are being used with axial 
loading and I don't like the way he felt the need to bush the join 
between the reinforcement bar and lower arm - this would be a solid join 
if it were to be a true lower wishbone. I also don't like the price he 
sells the kit for! (partly because it'd be tough for me to compete with 
my idea, even though it would be an improvement!).

The video shot by Raphael clearly shows the lower arm being dragged 
still under braking, even though the movement is much improved. See time 
index 1:03.
