The X-Celerator Pistol Wheel is much smoother than the stock wheel with superb workmanship its a great addition to my buggy.
Installed the Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade on both buggies, worth it! Awesome product! – Mike Dario
I LOVE CLASSIC BUG PARTS PRODUCTS! They are some of the best that I’ve put on my buggy. The action of the Big Boy Pedal Extender, along with the X-Celerator Speed Wheel Kit, is MUCH smoother than the stock assembly, and both are very easy to install.
One of the nicest parts of the unique clutch shaft (on the Big Boy Pedal Extender) is that the cable is fastened with stud and bushing. This makes for a noticeably smoother clutch action. The service is always great whenever I call. – Kevin Knight
OK here is my testimony: Let me first start off by saying I’m not one to write reviews but I feel this one is necessary for all the VW enthusiasts out there. I have a 1967 full custom Cal look VW which I’ve spent countless hours on to make it reliable and comfortable to drive. The products that Classic Bug parts sells, such as the Big Boy Pedal Extender, have helped tremendously with my comfort in the drivers seat! Along with comfort, I want reliability and the Clutch Pedal Shaft upgrade did this… I never have to worry about my clutch pedal hook snapping on me ever again! Piece of mind when driving a Classic VW is important. Soon to be installed will be the Pistol Wheel for my accelerator. I’m certain this will meet all expectations, as my previous two purchases from Classic Bug parts have. Thanks for the awesome products for the VW community! Keep up the great work guys! I absolutely love the parts I’ve installed thus far… Soooooo much better than stock!! – John Mofidi
Yall have some great products, and amazing customer service. I enjoyed working with Ron. He helped a lot. I love the pedal I got from you. – Jeremy Zeitler
(Our note: Jeremy has our Pistol Wheel X-Celerator installed, not the Speed Wheel X-Celerator. Both feature the same double-arm accelerator mechanism. Thanks for the kind words, Jeremy!)
Currently working on installing the 2276 monster. Jeff has the ClassicBugParts Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade in his pedal cluster set. When he took it apart to rebuild it himself, he thought ClassicBugParts product was genius. He drove it for a while with his previous engine on a long trans, armed with a 1700 pound Kennedy, and it was like butter! Now he is going with a 2100 pound pressure plate with a carbon disc to put all that horsepower to the ground.
