"Free" Camber?

What do you think about elongating the top strut mount holes for additional camber? This along with M3 front control arms could possibly yield ~2 degrees of camber?

It should work. I'd just be careful not to go too far or else you'd not be able to put the nut back on, lol. With the M3 controls I was able to get up to -1.5* camber. It wouldn't go farther than that.

Yeap. You'll be limited by the clearance between the spring perches/strut top mount and the inside wall of the strut tower. I haven't measured this clearance, but I stuck my fingers in there. It feels like there might be another centimeter of inboard movement available.
