Adding weight on the trunk floor may be a practical idea as long as you can center and keep tight that weight. Or go kinky and buy the Moto GP wing


But it's not like you're going airbone beyond 130 mph in a stock 1M.

Advevo in his performance rearspoiler equipped 1M and I did some 140/150mph stuff in Germany last sunday , both on 225/40 18 inch wobbly wintertyres but the cars both were stable enough....

1M can do 272kmh on tacho (limited) , but it's not a straightline racer, 200/230kmh is fine for a while. No worries, no sweat.
