When it comes down to it, the RevoKnuckle is a mini double wishbone suspension. It nullifies camber.

Now if they had an electric clutch driven mechanical LSD, they could use that for torque steer compensation by directing torque to the wheel on the outside of the curve caused by the torque steer.

They're going to have to throw every trick they have in the book to deal with an FWD car that delivers 325+ hp, which will want to rip your tendons apart with epic torque steer.
