X-Celerator PISTOL Wheel - UPGRADED Accelerator   Price: $111
Enjoy a HUGE improvement over stock accelerator designs... with stable, smooth, and responsive pedal action.

Many people ask about the difference between the old "roller ball" and the new X-Celerator 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.

The Pistol Wheel twin-lever mechanism is laser cut, formed, and TIG-welded together resulting in a strong and stiff accelerator. It revolves around a longer CNC-machined and polished 303 stainless pivot pin that becomes a shaft and gives you a smooth effortless feel to your pedal. We have tailored the arm location relative to the tunnel for improved alignment of the throttle cable to the accelerator arm, reducing strain on the cable. The rear tab can be removed to accommodate larger carburetors.

In short, the original VW accelerator mechanism has been reinvented for a more enjoyable driving experience. Please visit our website for more details, and for additional upgrades for your awesome VWs - ClassicBugParts.com.

The X-Celerator "PISTOL Wheel" is designed for direct lever connection 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.

Please Note: The black delrin wheel option in the picture has been discontinued, ALL Pistol Wheels are now machined from solid aluminum 6061-T6 (which you may want to have anodized in your color of choice).

The Pistol Wheel Conversion Kit for LHD 58-66 includes:

1. NEW Machined 6061-T6 Aluminum "Pistol Wheel" (makes direct contact with your foot).
2. NEW (proven design) X-Celerator lever mechanism
3. NEW CNC-machined and polished pivot pin made from 303 stainless steel and e-clip.
4. NEW cut-to-length accelerator cable utililzing S-Link
