The motor should be fine. You need an esc to check the motor.

The motor is fine!! I recently fried a tekin RS the same way, well my friend did it when I told him to bring me my car when the race was finished as I was running 2 classes and got back to back heats...
FYI LRP speedos don't burn if polarity is switched
