It looks like it will stop the car rolled by bumps and kerb riding and stop the camber change as much when it rolls through a corner. It probably design to keep the camber at a fixed angle going over bumps, and massivly reduce the camber change in a corner without having to use harder springs. If the top link was'nt used it could run a fixed camber angle through out compression.

It 's intrestring I give yer that but it a whole new ball game for setting up the supension
The camber control is the same as on all other independent a-arm suspesions, the only change is the more direct wheel rate, not having to account for the leverage of the a-arm.

Since the arms are alloy, wouldn't that add quite a marginal weight to the back?

this is something new and interesting. I'm wondering how different it is as far actual feel on the track. i don't think the alum hubs will add that much weight.

Aluminum hubs on race cars isn't unconventional and the weight is so minute, it goes unnoticed. Corally, a lot of Schumacher, etc. use aluminum in the hub carrier or c-hub with success. It's much different than using it in arms, shock towers, chassis etc. Plus you have the added bonus of having your bearings true and parts developing less play.

Only rear, as i understand on the front there just is no room for it, as the wheels needs to be able to steer, you can't have the arms going around the shocks or they'll interfere...

Actually, i'm not so sure... you could technically mount the shock off the C-hub.
It would be in a similar position from the centerline as at the moment, but als be able to be closer to the driveshat.
Your limiting factor would be the arm itself, as mentioned, clearance on the wheels on lock being the problem.
You might possibly be able to do it with 24mm wide rims... but 26 or larger, I would doubt it.
