Default Shock oil weight for HPI Sprint?

I have an original HPI Spring (not Sprint 2) and I'm rebuilding the shocks. The pistons are 1 hole and the springs are the stock yellow stiffness. I'm not trying to race this thing but I'd like to get it somewhere in the ballpark of where it's supposed to be. What weight shock oil should I use? I was thinking somewhere around 50?

I would start with 40 weight.
If it smells burnt up.. it's more than likely hot.. you don't have to touch it..
