that smell is insulation burning off of the windings. might wanna stop running that motor before you smoke the esc too.
sounds like a bearing in the motor locked up causing the rest.

replace the whole motor. if the insulation's burnt it isnt gonna live long and probably take out the esc too.

Okay, it runs fine just the temps rise and it feels like the rotor inside is a lot hotter than the can, so the insulation is what? Keeps the rotor cool?

its the coating on all those gold (brown) wires inside the can, it keeps the wires from shorting.

Once it's damaged, it will just get worse and worse, eventually killing the motor and possibly the ESC.
