Default TC3 (Rally) dirt is stripping drive gears

Somehow very fine dirt is getting into the transmission case. It's extremely fine dirt almost dust like and it cakes up between the teeth making it so they don't mesh well and strip.

It is sealed tight so I think the dirt is being sucked in either through the outdrive holes or the drive shaft hole behind the spur gear (I think this is most likely since its kinda loose).

There is also a hole in the top of the case that I plugged with a screw, should I have or is it there for a reason? did plugging this hole has create a vacuum?

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

no sealing the tranny wont cause a vacuum. however sometimes the dust is from the bearings themselves. especially if you have teflon shields. but to make very sure that your box is tight you could replace it or you could use a very small amount of grease along the edges where the tranny seals up. along with where the outdrives and shaft exit the tranny. that way it is sealed and, also wont bind up the tranny. other than that it is hard to say.
