Default Sprint Drift 2 Troubles

I have my sprint drift 2 and I'm having terrible overheating troubles I have the Castle 1406 brushless motor and sidewinder 3 ESC.
I have a 84 Spur gear and a 23 pinion. I need a little help because I cant gets this gearing issue fixed and I'm starting to think that it may just be the pavement being hot but idk. Help

Couple quick questions. What kv is the motor (they were available in a few different outputs). What are you using the car for mostly? What is getting hot (esc, motor, battery, all 3)? How hot is "hot"?

check your gear mesh spur/pinion. if its tight that can cause heat build up. release the pinion and check that the drive chain is free from any resistance
