Default Car Overheating

recently purchased a team Associates RC 10 Classic edition, because I had one when I was a kid and wanted my son to experience it as well. We can only run the car for 2-3 minutes before the motor and ESC overheat and the car stops running. The servo still works, but the motor wont and the ESC beeps. This last for 15-30 seconds and then it will allow you to run it for another minute or so and then stops and on and on. I replaced the motor already thinking it was the problem. Any ideas?Tthanks in advance.

Get a different motor/ESC. I'd go brushless, but something very mild. That would also make you want to buy LiPOs.
