I think I burned up my motor

Ok, I am new to this electric stuff. I have the Hobby King Pitts S2b. I have a 14.8 volt Lipo battery 5500 mAh and 45C rating. I have a 70 AMP ESC and Had a Turnigy SK3-3548-840kv motor. it was turning a 13X6.5 Propeller. Now I was holding it on the ground running wide open throttle and noticed smoke out of the motor but it was too late when I pulled the power off.
1. Is this a satisfactory Battery/Motor/ESC...and prop set up?
2. Did I just run it too hard on the ground and smoked it?
3. What replacement motor would you recommend me to replace the 3548 with? Should I use a different prop?
