Try not to have to use any spacers on the prop adapter. and be sure your prop is balanced. Using spacers opens you up to vibration problems.
It also looks as if you will have plenty of incoming air for the motor cooling but you will have to provide for the air to exit also. It is also a possibility that you can mount your ESC to the motor mount box in the same air stream that comes off the motor. As a suggestion you want the exit area approximately 1/3 larger that the entrance area.
