Default Primary Temperature

I have had my Red Ale in primary for 8 days at a steady 70 degrees. Should I expect any strange flavors when I rack tomorrow?

What yeast did you use? Most yeasts do well between 65-72, so it should be okay. At the very worst you'll get a slight fruity character, but most of the times it isn't noticeble enough to be a serious flaw.

In the future I'd try to ferment around 66 degrees because during active fermentation in primary the temp of the wort/beer can actually raise a few degrees. If you think your ferment temp was 70, in all actuality it was probably closer to 75.

It'll still be good beer, man, NIF!!!!

It was Wyeast Irish 1084; temp did start out high but I cooled it fairly aggressively but the ambient temp here was mid to high 70's.
