Default greasing gear box

How often do you guys grease your gearboxes? I have a twin detonator, monster beetle, blackfoot xtr., striker and grasshopper. Do you open the whole box or just take the motor out, grease the pinion and then turn the wheels to distribute it? How long can you safely go without it?

Back when we played with the Monster Beetle I'd open the gearbox to clean it and grease it with the infamous black sticky stuff. I never put grease on the pinion or anything exposed that might attract dirt, just the spider gears.
