The newly designed Pistol Wheel is a complete accelerator upgrade kit featuring superb workmanship, providing your bug improved pedal performance and greater appeal.  This upgrade boasts the same accelerator lever design (Patent Pending) found in all our X-Celerator Kits, along with the quick and smooth action of the new machined aluminum or delrin wheel.  THERE IS NO FLAT PEDAL IN THIS DESIGN.

Your foot is in direct contact with the “pistol” wheel, and you enjoy the positive difference each time you step on it…  as you are more in touch with the throttle…  

The old issue addressed by this upgrade is the wear of stock linkage components, where the retaining spring on the old Z-bar linkage often pops off.  On the stock design, the accelerator cable is not in line with the accelerator lever, so the linkage easily disconnects. This is also  why the accelerator cables often break, causing the engine to just idle…  Not something you want happening while you’re on the road!

Here’s the solution:  The twin-lever Pistol Wheel’s careful design keeps the accelerator cable inline with the accelerator tube in the tunnel.  The lever action is laser-cut, formed, and welded together, resulting in a strong, stiff accelerator.   This improved lever revolves around a longer CNC-machined and polished 303 stainless steel pivot pin, providing a more stable, effortless feel to the pedal. The rear stop tab on the new accelerator lever can also be adjusted for bigger carburetors.

pistol_wheel_aluminum_mounted1_smYour point of contact with this cool bit of engineering is the newly designed “Pistol Wheel” itself, machined from 6061-T6 aluminum or solid delrin, known for superior strength and wear properties.  The silky-smooth and accurate response of the Pistol Wheel may bring you an even closer bond with your bug…

There has been a very positive response to the Pistol Wheel from its release.  If you have a ’58-’66 and want a superb accelerator upgrade (and a highlight for your build)…  try it, you’ll like it.  :-]
