get some offset wheels and it will widen the stance so it wont flip and you can also lower it some so it wont flip as easy.

softer shock oil would help absorb the body roll causing it to flip.

Increase your camber front and back a little (top of the tires tilted into the body slightly). This plus offset rims helped out a ton.

There is an awesum sway bar kit on Impaktrc.com, and bluegrooveconcepts has one also. In My revo i have the silver in front and the blue in the rear and i dont really flip at all.
