bottoming out is sortoff an xray 808 thing..their shocks werent that great and the limited droop makes them bottom out easier than say the mugens...that being said, although my 808 did slap hard over the odd big jump or two..it never did it all the time...perhaps your shock oils are a bit thin? i used to run blue grey front spring and stock silver rear coupled with about 35 in the rear with 40 up front...that worked on most tracks. If you use the stock larger hole shock pistons (instead of 10 or 8 holes option ones) try going a bit thicker in shock oil. a smaller hole piston will give you more "pack" as the shock compresses so that may be why my 808 did not bottom out AS much..although it still did on some areas.
