Tricks to adjust camber plates without removing struts?

I want to make some slight adjustments to my camber plates (K-Sport) for this AX season, but I can't seem to get enough torque on them through the strut tower hole using a ball-end allen key.
Does anyone have a trick to do this that doesn't involve cutting the strut towers or dropping the struts entirely? I'd like to be able to fine-tune at the track, but I'm not going to take a sawzall to the strut towers.

I just put a set of coil overs on my 986 .I made sure that I pulled the top mount all the way till the screws were against the side of the holes in the strut tower. I figure if I want to change it undo the top three screws let the coil over drop down screw it in or out to adjust the height or in your case make the camber adjustment then put the top plate screws back how it was against the strut tower holes. And then take it to get aligned again. I went to Firestone and bought a life time alignment as long as I own the car for 300 bucks .

ball end allen key with a 5 inch handle. It came with an ikea furniture I bought. I hammered the handle to curve it a little and it fits right in
