Rear axle for the printed truck V1!
This is the axle housing plus the differential gears, it will behave like a locked differential with this setup.
I might make an open differential sometime but not in the near future as I only care about maximum traction with this.
4mm axle, length depends on wheels
4mm bearings, I used 624zz bearings.
M3 grubscrews for locking the gears(M3x4 should work)
You will also need rodends and suitable rods for connecting the axle to the frame.
Seems to run fine without oil/grease but adding some thick grease probably wouldn't hurt.
You can see a demo of the complete truck here:

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.
