yikes. i better remove that 76 spur then. it fits.. and it BAAARELY touches.

put a piece of protective tape under the chassis where the spur gear is and you don't have to worry about dirt and pebbles getting in...

how about placing a thin sheet of plastic over the opening of the chassis and tape around the outer edge?

I cover the whole bottom chassis except the motor hole.
Not sure if it's a good idea.

I use Loctite glue remover. Apply, set it down for a minute, then it become gooey. WD40 or Goo Gone afterwards.

All the instruction manuals of the R2 or R3 are in Japanese? No English?
