Whats that orange bit for?

This is probably a really daft question but I am very ignorant when it comes to things electrical. What is the little brown / orange thing between the connections on a slot car motor? I guess it is a resistor or capacitor, but why is it there and what difference does it make if it is removed?

McLaren is right, if the cap itself has gone (ie blown) it will be reading a very low resistance and just basically arcing the power away inside itself.

Cut it off!!
