Your list looks good, a couple of warnings though, the balancer you use, wether in a charger or external, will need the proper adapter for the balance port on your battery, I use the losi balancer and it comes with all the adapters I've ever seen.
Look into charge rates and understand them, a safe rule of thumb is 1 amp per 1000mah of battery size, aka 4800mah lipo gets charged at 4.8 amps, 5200mah lipo gets charged at 5.2 amps.
Charge only at the voltage of the lipo, 1 cell, 3.7v... 2 cell (also called 2s) 7.4v, 3cell (also called 3s) at 11.1v and so on. The s stands for series, which is how multi cell lipos are wires to increase voltage.
Only run the lipo your esc can handle, meaning dont try to run a 3 cell lipo on some rtr esc!
Try to buy an esc with lipo cutoff and set the esc up for said cutoff before using it, your car will just stop before you ruin anything.
Lipo batteries can be dangerous if unattended, stay close while charging, they should never get real hot from charging or use like nimh.
Hope this helps!
