A friend is trying to sell me his BL Hacker motor B40-14L. Will this motor work in my Voyager E with 3-cell LiPo pack? If yes, what pinion gear to use?

Any information and/or past experience that you have with this motor is much appreciated.

Thanks.

The 14L is NOT suitable for use on the VE. Generally speaking you need a KV value above 3000 for the motor to work well with the VE's gearing. The 14L has a KV of only 2043, so even with a 3s pack and a BIG pinion, your headspeed will be too low.

As a point of reference, the 8L motor (highly recommended for the VE) has a KV of 3750 and typically uses a 16-18 tooth pinion depending on the battery and the application.
