Default 2 cycle oil

What oils do you guys recommend, I've been running HPI stuff in my Baja and Firehammer forever, and it works fine, but is there something better I should be using?

Also, is there any problem with running the cheap stuff hardware stores sell for chainsaws and stuff?

I use Castrol 2T 2 stroke oil. Works just as good as any other, and you can get it for $2.50 a quart at Walmart.
