    Heavier shock oil and/or stiffer springs.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    From Traxxas the purple spring (part #7246) is the stiffest, there are some even stiffer aftermarket springs but I don't know those. I use the purple springs and 90wt shock oil in the rear shocks, now the truck doesn't bottom after jumps and better maintains it's ground clearance during acceleration (no more silly nose rising and rear diving).

    Got these springs from MSC (#2312106), manufacturer is Gardner (#36148G). Rate is about 6N/mm, 3 times stiffer than stock revo, 2 times stiffer than stock summit springs. stiffer than Ace Hardware springs, stiffer than GPM springs, stiffer than Hot Racing. they fit perfectly and perform excellently off road and on large jumps. a word of caution, increasing ride hight and suspention stiffness will negatively affect on road handling, especially at high speeds
