Or you could use two motors for each track.  Power a single motor for 
"low" gear, with the second connected to a minimal load loop to reduce 
resistance, and power both for "high" gear.  I don't think it would take 
up much more space or weight than using a transmission, and it would be a 
lot more reliable for the cost.
