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

that must be poking out of the bottom of the chassis

I'm suprised it's not turned into the nice smooth disc by now

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?
