Custom Works Dominator Resto

Post by scr8p » Sat Dec 24, 2016 6:59 pm

So here is the Dominator I snagged on ebay. It's dirty and missing some parts but I'm happy with it.

Spent a little while this morning tearing it down. Found some more pieces that are cracked and will need to be replaced, such as the castor blocks and knuckles.

So that's where it's at for now. :mrgreen:

Looks like a darn good start! Sucks that it's missing pieces. Are you going to use a slider for the steering? One of mine had that and it was a slick setup but never found out if it was ever an original upgrade or was simply added

I honestly don't know if it ever came with the slider. As far as I know that was Intimidator and Enforcer only. I'm pretty sure all of the stock steering pieces can still be purchased for CW though.

I've only ever seen the car with the drag link setup. But I don't have much history.

I know they didn't originally 8) wasn't sure if they made an official option part or if some point late production one was used.

i searched dominator on the CW website, very little left of the original dominator IV now

the newest version is using bellcranks.

my experience with rack and pinion and slider steering systems on older buggies was they would jam and required constant maintenance.

that one looks like the one that went awhile back for about half that price right down to the pictures. Plenty of spare tires for sure and RJ has all the money in the world so it'll fit right in to his collection :mrgreen:

Hah!!! If that were the case my Fairlane would have been up to scratch over a year ago instead of slogging it out week to week with it.

I doubt I'll get another altough I miss mine. It was a new example and I got good money for it when I sold it long ago....

now....

Since you probably have so many and you'd like to donate one I'll look after it :lol:

At the end of their production, they had the slider steering and no holes for the bellcrank parts. They also used a lexan battery holder that only held 6 cells instead of 7 like the intimidator. There where no cut outs or slots for the battery. It sat on top of the chassis. I have a new built dominator that was one of the last madeImage.

I have a whole chassis in parts and most probably a full steering setup. Let me know if you need anything.
