Default Lipo is HOTTER than esc and motor

So i purchased a used HPi Wr8 flux, when i got it it had a 2ch spektrum reciever in it, which ment the fan on the ESC wasnt pluged in. I have no idea how long this dude ran it like that or if it got overheated, or what. But any size Lipo i run in it (which usually is a Floureon 3s 4500 mah 30c battery). When I run it which is maybe for 10-15min max my Battery gets hotter than my motor or Esc. I checked the temp and it was 130-135F. And the motor was only around 110 and esc was around 100 give or take. But my battery is way to hot! Anybody know why this is hapening. Btw, ive got a 3 ch reciever in it now with the fan working properly.
