I did this with mine, and the trick is to get it tight enough that it won't allow much of anything to pass, yet loose enough that you don't notice any difference when you spin the shaft. Stuff still gets past, but its small dusty stuff, I made an additional loop for the rear as well, which is removable when I pull the shaft. I noticed after I put in the second loop, and filled in the holes on the underside of the chassis that nothing major gets into the transmission, just dust.
Another trick to aid in keeping unwanted particles out is to take a piece of screen door mesh and use it as an "over-tray" of sorts. Keeps big chunks out, and still allows for the brush-less to maintain optimal operating temperatures. Mind you it does allow things in, but its mostly small stuff. Helps keep the grass out and whatnot too. I'll post some pics up later.
