Default HPI shock oil for buggies?

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTLL4&P=M

Alrighty so I noticed in a magazine picture of some guys shelf there was a row of these shock oils intended for the Baja thingy from HPI. Would this stuff be junk to use in an 1/8 buggy? I need to buy a few bottles of different weight shock oil and i'm shopping around -this stuff just happened to catch my eye.

I'm sure it would work but it's petroleum. Pretty much everyone prefers silicone shock oil for better temp stability. I would go with Losi oil.
