it has an additional outer shock mount hole. This new outer shock location increases forward traction, improves jumping and bump absorption. This shock tower also features a new set of camber link holes that will allow the chassis to roll with more increasing corner speed

yes its def worth it...if you go to the 8t 2.0 truggy section we have been talking about this for mounths

Might be wrong but the xtreme tower adds the extra shock position downwards Losi and KH is upper.

I run the King headz tower and last weekend at practice I adjusted the rear shocks to the outer hole. It made a huge difference. Some of you might not like how loose the truck is with it but I did. I was able to rotate in the corners more and get in and out faster. That is where I have been loosing time.
I haven't tried to move the camber link yet.
