The problem sounds like maybe one of your stepper drivers is overheating and going into protection mode – they stop momentarily to allow the heat to dissipate. This is a common problem on a lot of 3D printers, usually alleviated by adding a small fan somewhere near the drivers.

So try that, just a little 30mm 5v or 12v fan blowing air across the stepper drivers. See if it makes a difference at all.
