Default What Temp Should My Car Run At?

Ok I am stationed in 29 Palms California, Its 110+ all the time in the summer. Now my car runs at 210 usually but might jump to 220 maby 230 if im at WOT from light to light and putting alot of stress on her......but was wondering if this is too hot and should get a new thermostat or if its ok, and I have checked the fluids and radiator cap and its fine. Thanks In advance

220 is about right, if it would ease your mind get a lower thermostat or get your fans to turn on sooner(tune)

I live in Delaware and on Both my C-4,s The fans would kick in at 223 on my 84 and 225 on my 88, as soon as the Digital gauge hit the temp they would come on, I figure they are no 100% acurate with the actual temp but never had a problem at all with overheating.
