Running around in 70-75 degree weather, what should my temps be?

Im running up to 226 if im playing, but not playing for more than 5 minutes in some twisties.

226 is about normal. With my tunes i set it to be alot cooler, I run it around 200 even. Which also keeps air going thru the intercooler more since the fans are blowing at 45mph and less. They turn off after that mph if it cools down as the air entering the motor is more than the low fan provides anyways.. Which saves on amp draw on the altenator, making less parasitic loss via electrical current.
I saw up to 255 during V-Day II
