No I haven't... If I have a can't say I've noticed... But I'd imagine the motors would be sealed better, off the top of my head I can think of a seal that are used of heavy equipment it consists of 2 steal contact points that spin acrossed one another pressed together by a rubber lip. Keeps grease in and water out... works well to, I can see a problem with them at higher speed than at 12mph, but I'd imagine if they were greased every so often it wouldn't be a problem and it wouldn't take more than 5 minutes... An average joe could do it every oil change interval...

Heck, you could have an oil/lube reservoir that "drip" fed the seal contact... Wouldn't need to even add to it very often, but grease would work allot better...

I wouldn't care so long as it is optional and would take more than a half of a day and a six pack to convert into drums...
