Look like an asso rtc10 stealth transmission, which has the same ratio as well, haha...

That will depend on which body you're running, TCS or non-TCS rules?

I will be running TCS rules. The two kit versions, that I've seen on the Tamiya site, that come with bodies are the JAS Motorsports Honda Civic and the Castrol Honda Civic VTI. I think the JAS version may be the short body version. In the TCS rules they just designate FF03 platform and list the bodies. I just wondered if anyone tried running the FF03 in the shortened version.

Both Civics are the long wheelbase. The only shorter body is the medium wheelbase Renault Clio which is ugly

you can move the front body post to suit the pre drilled hole of the shell.
