I'm trying to do maximum caster, camber, and set the toe to 0. with that in mind, with the rear of the arm pulled full towards outer edge of the car, as pictured, is that maximum caster or minimum? Thanks!20211101_163210.jpg

Yes.
However, I must ask you if you have the arms with the rod ends in the front or the bushing type.
If its the rod ends you are free to adjust away. If its the Bushing type I would be very careful about moving them very far from center as it could put the front bushing in a bind and these arms are known for breaking there due to angular loading/deflection of the front bushing under braking and cornering forces.
Putting it in a bind in steady state would compound this condition.
