Default Is my GTB gone?

I have several GTBs and are think there performance and reliability is great. Yesterday during an intercity meet. During my 4th run of the day with about 20seconds to go in a 5 minute race it just stopped. Steering still works, everything seems fine apart from the motor not running. It was running pretty hot as it was the peak of the day but it had completed 3 races beforehand without thermalling. It wasnt a thermal as it has not run since. When i turn it on now, the motor just makes like morse code noises with and the motor glitches slightly at slower speeds. It it got to hot shouldnt it thermal before it fails? Is my GTB fried? It smells as it has failed but the lights on it seem to work as in it is going, fan works the whole GTB seems fine apart from the motor making morse code noises and glitching? Could it be the motor? Cheers

Try resetting your GTB.
