I got such good results on the '12 by focussing on sticking down what I had, indeed. 1.5 60s on the stock BBP springs, shocks and bars seemed ok to me. Roush upper and UMI poly lowers may have aided a little but, running a full 10" wide slick was the biggest improvement.
It's a little less ideal on my 2014 auto car I have now bc it's a 28" slick I used with the 3.73s on the last car to cross the line under the limiter in 4th. However, I have them so, we'll give it a shot anyway.
