Could be a few problems there. First off, if you are using the original "Tamiya" battery and motor connectors, then there is your first problem. Second, if you are using the original pinion, then you are way over geared and need to drop teeth. Third, if this is the stock ESC, then your in for a world of hurt. You can't just drop a 12-turn modified motor in a RTR and expect it to work.
BTW, what kind of batteries are these, and did the batteries themselves melt (which would be REALLY hot), or was it the shrink wrap around the batteries (which is what I assume you are talking about)?
