hey guys i was wondering if the bennett 5 in the front and the tracker 129mm rts in the rear would make for a good board to pump but also good to carve? if not, what's a good setup for some quality pumping and carving? id prefer something a bit more on the carving side however

Could probably just not de-wedge the rear trucks as much to make them turn more.  Maybe find a compromise between pumping efficiency and turning.  Or get something like a GBomb bracket for the rear and you could change the rear truck angle in a few seconds when you need to carve down a steeper hill.

I've not done any steep downhill type carving, but I do find the the pumping setup on either of my decks seems to do a fairly good job.  On a 2-lane bike path trail, I can get pretty full carving turns from side to side w/o too much trouble.  There are a few underpasses on the main trail I ride that are pretty fin to carve down to keep the speed in check when there are not a lot of other folks in the way.
