Questions?? got a question about overheating

I got a T maxx with a 2.5R and its had about a gallon or so of fuel ran thru it since break in, and the last couple times that I've ran it, its been running strong for about five mins or so and then starts to bog and slowly bogs so much that there is almost nothing there for throttle, also starts to overheat after boggin. Now its never done this before, I clean the air cleaner air filter after every run and try to keep a strong glow plug in it. Plus I've never raced this motor. could this be a fuel mixture issue? cause I've tried to richen and lean the mixture to try to fix the problem. any suggestions?

Check the front bearing. If it is wet you need to replace it. It leaks air causing your engine to run really lean. Even if you richen the engine it will run like crap.
