Issues with open gears?

Looking at things like some of the RC4WD transmissions with the open gears where the motor mounts to the transmission I have to wonder if that is an issue with getting rocks/sticks/leafs/etc. stuck in the gears. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Not an issue. It's been this way for as long as I can remember. Most spur/pinion assemblies are pretty far away from any debris.
