It was the best mod incorporated on my Manx! I’m getting ready to order another set for my Manx SR. The body is a 2013 Meyers Manx KickOut.
The chassis started out as a 1967 VW but was replaced with a custom IRS chassis in 2017. I have been tinkering with Volkswagens & Meyers Manx dune buggies since the mid seventies. The only drawback to my favorite hobby has been my size 13 DDD shoes. ClassicBugParts was one of the best improvements I’ve incorporated that makes the driving experience as fun as it should be. – Jim Marrs
Great product! The “X-Celerator Speed Wheel” pedal from Classic Bug Parts is smooth during operation and so much more solid feeling than the original pedal, plus it’s made from far better material. I will never run another type of pedal on any build project that I work on.

Here is my Manx. I have your Big Boy Pedal Extender in it. This is a 2017 Manx I just built. I own many VW’s and always have had troubles with the clutch cables coming off and the pedals being too close together. When I learned about Classic Bug Parts products, I got one to see what it was about. I love it so much that I got one for two other VW’s I have. Now the Big Boy Pedal Extender Clutch Shaft upgrade kits will be standard in all of my VW’s. – Tim Hillier
“A few years ago I purchased a Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade Kit from Classic Bug Parts for my 1972 VW Karmann Ghia. (I actually ordered three, as I also own a Super Beetle and a Thing). As I restored my Karmann Ghia, I installed the clutch upgrade kit with peace of mind, especially after seeing that the original clutch hook was close to failure. Installation was straight-forward, and it was easier to re-install the pedal assembly with the cable attached to the new bearing part. While driving, there is no discernible difference in the feel of the the clutch pedal. I couldn’t be happier with my new Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade from Classic Bug Parts. I’m looking forward to installing them into my two other VWs when I get a chance.” - Steve Dommer
I have been lovingly and methodically bringing my Ghia back for the last 10 years, from nose to tail. The best, absolutely the best upgrade I have made was installing the Classic Bug Parts pedal kit. This is simply amazing, what a difference it has made in the driver feel and experience. The clutch pedal shaft upgrade and X-Celerator Speed Wheel Kit are worth every penny.
