Comparison pics of rear drums (thing, early type 3, beetle 4 lug with 4to5 adapter) Posted: Sat Mar 15, 2014 5:35 pm     Views: 69      Rating: Not rated

Here is the beetle drum/adapter and wide 5 type 3

Comparison pics of thing, wide 5 type 3, and beetle 4 lug with wide 5 adapter rear drums. All drums were placed on identical spray paint can tops to mimic riding on the inner bearing, rather than just placing them on the ground.

The track of the Thing drum was between 10/16" and 11/16" wider than the type 3 drum.

The track of the Thing drum was 1/2" wider than the beetle drum/adapter.

The track of the beetle drum/adapter was just under 1/4" wider than the type 3 drum.
