changing motors and pinions can be a hassle.
The 1/18 hobbywing combo is probably too small for the 1/14 Tacon Valor.
The Valor uses a 380 size motor, which would be comparable to the motor used in the 1/16 traxxas trucks like the mini-revo or the rally.
The shaft size for the typical 380 motor is 3.15mm.
That hobbywing motor has a 2mm shaft.
Standard pinions would fit this 380 motor, Check out Robinson Racing for a few pinion options. Actually the pinion you have off the brushed motor will fit.

My recommendation would be to get some kind of combo with at least a 35A esc. On the NitroRX web site I see their brushless motor is 4500kv.
