Yeah, but that's for kick-up. We're looking for degrees in castor.

It's the same for castor. Since the c hubs are fixed to the same plane of the arms, whatever you do to the arms, will effect the castor.

Going to 0 deg castor will decrease on power steering and instead make your car more aggressive entering the turn.

Exactly. More on power steering. The whole idea, in stock racing, is to barely let off in the corners. "More aggressive entering the turn", as you put it, is highly sought out and welcomed in stock racing. No matter the wording, it still increases on-power steering.
