Is this a good HPI Sprint 2 Motor / Servo / Lipo setup?

I am looking to upgrade my Sprint 2 and after doing a lot of research I have settled on the following items:

Castle SV3 Sidewinder 5700kv

Hitec HS-8330SH

GENS ACE 5000mAh 40C 7.4V

I am very new to this so any feedback about this setup would be greatly appreciated.

Also can anyone recommend a good LiPo charger that would help a lot!
motor and servo are good choices, IMO.
I would personally go for 2 LiPo's with around 2500 mah rather than 1 5000 mah.
5000's are kinda heavy for a chassis that's already heavy in the rear because of the layout. when I switched from a larger output battery to a much smaller output that weighed about half as much I noticed a significant difference in response and feel. with a heavier battery it was harder to switch as the rear just wanted to keep sliding along. maybe you're a better drifter or have a better suspension tune than me and it doesn't bother you though.
just my 2 cents.
