Default Starter box - how to get gears on motor?

Is there a trick to getting a gear onto a 550 starter box motor? Or is it just brute force?

I have the duratrax motors and gears and the gear fits so tightly on the shaft that it is hard to get on.

On my Ofna box the gears (well pulleys really) were just pressed on, they were insanely hard to get off. So after I got them off I drilled and tapped a hole in each so they would be held on with a set screw, easy to replace the motors now!
