If you extend it, you're not running a mini. Wheelie bars would take care of that problem as well - and keep its original shape.

A longer wheelbase wont help at speed. The wheelie bar wouldn't help

I don't think you need any thing of that sort. The guy arild365 or something(I think he made this forum) put a honda 125 or something in his mini mower. No wheely bars or frame mods. He has a few videos of him ripping around on it.
