You'll get some different answers on this. IMO that's fine. My softcase LiPos will come off around 109F, similar to yours. Hardcase packs will temp cooler because there's space (air and/or foam/tape) between the LiPo itself and the hardcase, so if you read 110F on the hardcase, the cells are a bit hotter.
Are the packs puffing? If not, you're fine. Mine will sometimes puff just slightly after runs on hot days. They still perform great.
