Default Traxxas Maxx - 1515-2200KV - 6s - Overheating

So I've been fighting with this build for like a year now. I swapped a castle 1515-2200KV in for the VXL system and as of now, I'm running 20/54. I keep stepping the pinion down and spur up but I'm still having heating issues. I'm running it on 6s and currently get like 10 minutes before it hits thermal protection and shuts down. This thing has all the power in the world but not that fast (I think stock was faster) due to the gearing.

My next thought was to toss on some fans but I shouldn't really need them. I'm at a loss as why its overheating unless its under geared now.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
