Sounds like a good start. But sensored brushless will give help give some wheelspeed and smooth control. They also don't seem to get so hot like some brushed setups. Those worm drives seem to eat alot of power.

RCBros Motor Clamp - http://cart.rcbros.com/product_info....tq0k88e5g3a1u6

Heavy Duty Worm Gear Set - http://www.rcplanet.com/Losi_HD_Worm...p/losa3187.htm

And two of these to get your battery and electronics lower - CKRC electronics plate - https://www.ckrccrawlers.com/ckrc-el...-1-p-3103.html

That should do you for a long time.
