It might be your batteries. Have you tried it with a different one? If you get the chance, let me know what happens.

A 19T motor will drain a 2000 mah battery pretty quick. I'm assuming it's the motor that's getting really hot? First have a quick look at the motor. Make sure the brushes are in good shape and the comm is not too badly worn. Also make sure it spins freely. I've seen guys put trucks away and forget to oil the bearings in the wheels and motors and they've rusted badly.

If all is well there then have a look at the battery.
