Questions?? RC10B44 Standard or Metric? Best Allen Wrenches?

Hey everybody, I'm fairly new to RC and have a RC10T4 and RC18T(selling). I am going to order a RC10B44 this weekend and was wondering if it is standard or metric so that I can finally order some real allen wrenches. I'm looking at either the Losi, which I've borrowed and they are nice, or the associated which look nice and are cheaper but not sure how well their tips hold up. Thanks in advance for your help.

Personally if you want to talk best wrench set for the price. Go with the Integy set. Tower has them for $26.59 (just search for C22301). They have nice aluminum handles and Ti-nitride tips. They come with metric and standard. They are the following sizes;
0.05" - Silver
1/16" - Black
3/32" - Purple
5/64" - Green
1.5mm - Red
2.5mm - Blue
The Green wrench also works perfect for 2.0mm screws, I like them so much I bought 2 sets, one for at home and one for the track. They are all the Allen wrench's you could possibly ever need for R/C cars. Also once you get a good set of wrenches, you will enjoy building/maintaining your cars A LOT more.

Hey guys, thanks for all of the help, I went ahead and ordered a standard set of Losi allen wrenches to help build the B44 and will eventually order a set of nut drivers, then if I like them enough I'll probably get a set of both in metric just to have them in the future. Also, does anyone have an opinion on ACE servos? I picked up a DS1313 digital servo for the B44 as well.

I have the Integy's and the tips do suck since they can break easily. My track carrys RE stuff so I have been slowly replacing my tips with RE tips which are steel as apposed to the titanium ones.

The ACE servo should work well. I use the DS1015 for steering and the DS1313 for throttle/brake on my RC8.

I didn't like the Integy handles. Hard to get a good grip on them when your hands are sweaty and dirty form off-road racing.

I now use Hudy ProfiTools, but the Losi set looks pretty good too.
