Evidently TC hated the red plates and so there were never any more done that way. I bought the car in 2003 and just learned of this last month.
Yes, decreasing the castor allow the strut top nut to be position more in the center of the strut tower opening, thus allow more camber adjustment. TCK also use a load distribution ring and low profile 17mm top nut to gain more camber adjustment.
