    Esc overheating...

    First off, everything is stock on this car...im running the factory gearing as well. I ran the car today with dual 1200mah 7.2v batteries in series and 5 mins into it the car wouldnt move, the steering servo still worked but nothing when i pulled the trigger. I pulled the body off and took an infrared thermometer to it and the esc was around 175 degrees and the motor was around the same. This happened twice today on me and now im reaching out for any suggestions or insight on what i should do....

    any suggestions are greatly appreciated...

    Move motor/pinion away from spur and roll the car, any binding or does it roll freely?
