I think your going to better off with a front mounted (valance) oil cooler. As you drive you will be pushing air into it. Just make sure it's big enough and you have enough room between the backside of it and the tub to let air get through. Also, make your lines are sized properly. -12 at a minimum and -16 is better. With this you should be able to lose the extra fender mount oil cooler. Your not getting much air to them any way.

As far as trying to duct air from below to a tail mounted cooler, you won't be getting the proper amount of air needed to flow through an oil cooler unless the scoop us big enough and you have enough ductwork. You also might be fighting some aerodynamics on the outside for the air to exit I suspect.

I run a fender mount and front mount combination with a 934 style air dam at the track and see 190-200* temps after a half hour. I'm also making 400 rwhp @ 1 bar for reference.
