Gull wing front wishbones give more mid corner steering, especially through hairpin type sections and tight twisty bits.

So the the more the gull wing, the more mid corner steering and with less entry and exit corner cornering,
Does it also depend on where the the " the kink" is, ie. closer to the inner pivot point or further away towards the wheel?

Tbh its really down to your style of driving and set up, what works for Roger may not work for you as some just prefer flat wishbones, so would suggest getting a set of each and testing to find what works for you, i prefer flat and a lower centre of gravity and am quicker.
