Tamiya 58655 Citroen 2CV Charleston M05 FWD RC Kit (Kit Without ESC or Custom Deal Bundle)

This radio control model faithfully recreates the world-renowned Citroën 2CV Charleston. The polycarbonate body sits on top of Tamiya’s fun to drive M-05 front wheel drive chassis.

Over 3.5 million cars were produced from 1948 to 1990. Its reliable air-cooled 2-cylinder engine got the little front wheel drive car from A to B with little fuss, and the car could accommodate 4 adults adequately. With its soft suspension designed for off-road driving, it is said that the 2CV could traverse a ploughed field without breaking any of the eggs it carried.

M-05 at a glance:

The front wheel drive M-05 chassis features a lightweight, narrow, durable, and easy-assembly semi-monocoque resin frame. Gearbox, motor, battery pack, receiver, servo and ESC are positioned for optimum weight distribution and a low center of gravity. Ground-hugging 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension and the 3-piece steering linkage provide stable high-speed cornering. Gun metal color 11-spoke wheels are matched with tread-patterned radial tires and feature tire inserts.

- 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit.
- The 1982 model year 2CV Charleston body is accurately rendered in lightweight and durable polycarbonate.
- Separate injection molded parts are included to recreate front bumper support, headlights and side mirrors.
- The M-05 chassis is a compact unit based around a lightweight monocoque and offering great weight distribution with a low center of gravity.
- 239mm L wheelbase.
- M-05 has a wide range of Hop-Up Option parts available to tune the chassis.
- Includes 540-type Motor.
- Requires: 2-channel radio, ESC, steering servo, 7.2volt battery & battery charger, and Tamiya PS spray paint.


Options Explained

Bearing Upgrade: These make the car run more smoothly and are easily installed during assembly. If there is no option for these shown, then the kit already includes the bearing upgrade as standard. These are entirely optional.

Radio System: There is a choice of a TWIN STICK (Traditional) radio or a Steering Wheel (Modern) radios. All operate on 2.4Ghz and use the new Crystal-Free technology, so you can run multiple cars at the same time without any interference. All radios chosen from this page will include a steering servo as these are not included in the kit itself.

ESC: This is the connection between the radio system and the motor. You have several choices. The standard Tamiya unit (TBLE02S) suits many situations but is not water proof. Where a model number is shown (e.g. 20 or 15) that is the motor capacity of the unit - the lower the number, the more powerful a motor you can nstall later. All work with the motor in the kit.

Battery: The higher the number, the longer the run time.

Charger: Charge time is proportional to the battery you choose. Some examples - for the 1800 battery (others will take longer) - Overnight charger takes around 6 hours, Mid Speed around 2 to 3 hours, Ansmann 3 amp around 40 minutes and Hyper Delta around 30 minutes (if in the car, takes around an hour in the house).
