Oil cooling via Heat Exchanger. How do you like it?

This is a question for those guys who track the two-eleven and other lotus' equipped with the laminova heat exchanger, or any aftermarket heat exchanger.

How do your oil temps look on hot 100f+ track days? Does it eventually heat soak? I need a cooling solution for a 2zz equipped Toyota MRS and there is a good argument for heat exchangers vs air to oil.

Coolant: cycled between 190 - 195 F
Oil: cycled between 210 - 220 F
