LVC cutting out

I'm running the himax 3516/1130 motor with 12 x6 prop at 6000 ft above sea level. I'm useing a 2100MAh 10c lipo rated for 31 amps 42 burst. CC 45 amp ESC. On my MPI watt meter it says I'm pushing near 300 watts and 30 amps , but if I run full power for like 20 second the motor kicks off. I can throttel down and go again. Its fine if I keep it half throttel and only kick it for a few seconds.Is this normal or is my battery really not putting out what it says it should?. The battery is new, with only 2 flights on it. When I just checked it for like only 30 seconds I could feel the battery and ESC were starting to get warm already. The battery was charged on a Triton and balanced on a thunder power balancer!
