Speed passion 13.5/27t motor (brushless)

Problem goes like this , full power achieved then after about 10 seconds motor slows to approx 25% gradually over about another 10 seconds , esc and motor and wiring between get hot , wiring from battery to esc ok Motor also runs a bit lumpy ? like a misfire :thumbdown:

Sounds to me like the motor is drawing to much current. change motor and try again.
