I was born and raised in Bakersfield. I know how hot it gets there and the freshly plowed dry dirt gets into everything. So sounds like you just need to do some motor maintence, let motor cool down between runs, maybe get a motor heatsink and gear down till it's not smoking hot.
Could be two much timing.... Thats easy check. Just count the marks between the motor can and top.
Theres a off-raod track at Racers Haven off white ln and also at Lerdo highway off 99 going to shafter.
