That one is too long as it is the 4WD version. You want the FWD that looks like this:



It is short enough to fit the body length with an adaptor plate, but will require a custom cross brace as it is higher than the Renault UN1-2x series. (If you intend to use it with a Lotus engine, it may require a revised engine height/position to align the input/output shafts, therefore new mounts.)

As far as I know the 01E only came in these ratio sets:

1 - 3.50
2 - 1.89
3 - 1.23
4 - 0.86
5 - 0.67
6 - 0.56 (/0.60)

F - 3.85

or

1 - 3.75
2 - 2.14
3 - 1.51
4 - 1.17
5 - 0.97
6 - 0.82

F - 3.85


You would need to check if the power/torque characteristics of the engine you intend to use will work well with the longer or shorter set (although AA might offer some customised ratios.)
