58-66 Pistol Wheel Accelerator Upgrade   Price: 75 US
Old Roller Ball vs the New PISTOL WHEEL - from Classic Bug Parts.

Many people ask about the difference between the old Roller Ball and the new Pistol Wheel from ClassicBugParts.com. The problem with the Roller ball is that it uses a single accelerator arm, which allows the arm to wobble from side to side and creates friction. This is known to put strain on the accelerator cable, which is prone to break at that point. On the Pistol Wheel we use a double-reinforced arm which operates like a door hinge that eliminates the wobble (and features a machined pivot pin), plus we have tailored the arm location relative to the tunnel for proper alignment of the throttle cable to the accelerator arm. This further reduces the strain on the cable.

The Pistol wheel rides on a machined stainless steel pin for low-friction movement. The wheel has been reduced in size for better clearance to the bulkhead for bigger carburation. In short, the Classic VW accelerator mechanism has been reinvented for a more enjoyable driving experience and to add a measure of safety to the vehicle. Please visit our website for more details on upgrades for your awesome VWs. ClassicBugParts.com. Or simply give us a call at 1-805-888-9741...

Here is a short informational video for this Pistol Wheel Upgrade

Additional Notes: This complete accelerator pedal conversion kit is designed to eliminate the old Z-Bar throttle accelerator linkage that is outdated and needs replacing. As you likely know, time and wear to the old linkage causes the pedal to flop around. The linkage would either pop off or the pedal would stick to the floor, while the engine is racing wide open. Not much fun.

This NEW Pistol Wheel is built on our proven X-Celerator mechanism, which forms a stable u-shape when mounted to the cluster. The Pistol Wheel's lever mechanism is laser cut, formed and welded together making a strong, stiff accelerator lever. The Pistol Wheel's lever revolves around a longer CNC-machined and polished 303 stainless steel pivot pin that becomes a shaft and gives you a smooth effortless feel to your pedal. The rear stop tab on the new accelerator lever can be adjusted for bigger carburetors.

The NEW Aluminum pistol wheel is designed for positive contact with your foot while delivering a silky smooth feel. If you're used to an old wiggly "roller ball", you're in for a great experience... THERE IS NO FLAT PEDAL IN THIS DESIGN. Your foot is in contact with the wheel.
