Congrats, but don't think you've won the war. Keep showing him that you are being proactive about not burning the house/property down. Good luck.
I don't know how you have your truck geared bur there is no reason you cant use your motor and ESC in an E-maxx. Geared properly it will give you years of trouble free operation. My first brushless setup in my E-maxx was a Hacker C40-8L and a Mamba Maxx ESC on 3s and 4s A123's, I had to gear it pretty low and it wasn't terribly fast, but it was better than the brushed setup.
Here is a data log from a 4s run with an 11t pinion.
My tranny case is stock :D
ill take pics and post them
