    Have you checked for any binding in the drivetrain like wheel bearings and such? Also motor could be dirty or brushes wornout, what kind of batt/motor connectors do you have?

    Tamiya connectors? If so you will prob. need to replace them with some better ones, like Deans ultra plugs or something. The stock connectors get loose and cause higher resistance which will make the battery, ESC or motor hot or all of them. Same with the one on your charger.
