Default Sv2 6900kv help it overheats

So i've had this in my Rustler for over a year,one half it has been in my room. The first 2 weeks/month I ran it a lot, every 2 to 3 days. But later on the hotter it started to be. Then it got to a point where I thought it was me not balance charging my lipo. But I tried that and it didn't work. I am wondering did I maybe cause permanent damage to the esc by not balancing it between so many runs.
Also when running the esc's top disconnects with the bottom.
Oh and it hits 160 in two minutes of slow driving.

I had a hard time understanding what is written, but I'll try to help.

1. You must balance every charge, if not, serious damage can be done to the lipo. Fire/explosion is very likely!

2.6900kv is too much for a rustler, look at the CC3800.

3. What ESC?

4. 160* is not overly hot for either a motor or ESC.

5. If the motor got over 200*, irreversible damage has been done. It will continue to overheat during every run.

Probably all the bearings in the car and maybe even in the motor are full of dirt now and that makes the motor work too hard. So first take the car apart and check all bearings, if you're lucky, your motor has not yet started to demagnetize.
