Will work with Truck V1 and Truck V2
Simple gearbox with helical gears for 540 brushed motors.
Print and add some grease, works great!
The hardware you need:
4mm bearings, I used 624zz bearings.
M3 grubscrews for locking the gears
You can see more videos of the V1 and V2 truck over at my youtube channel:
Edit 2016-03-12: Added bighelical32t_0.7m_PIN.stl, this is the output gear with a 1.5mm hole for putting a pin through the gearshaft, this seems to work better than just using grub screws but requires drilling through the metal shaft.
Edit 2016-03-27: Updated with new gearbox housing that'll work in both Truck V1 and Truck V2.
Edit 2016-04-23: Apparently the new gearbox housing had some tight tolerances around the gear so I made some more space there, only file changed is mount2.stl
Also added spacer.stl which helps align the gears, put it behind the big middle gear.

3D printing nerd and wannabe-engineer. Making random projects from RC trucks to nerf guns, interested in pretty much anything technology related.
Top projects are my RC vehicles:
3D printed half-track truck
-Fully articulated and driven treaded vehicle.
3D printed RC truck V3
-4x4 truck with full drivetrain model.
3D printed RC buggy V2
-RWD race buggy
3D Printed RC truck V4
-6x6 standalone truck chassis to build upon.
Been 3D printing since 2013, lately moving into mechanical design and metalworking.
I do youtube videos about most things I make.
