I've been having pretty good luck with a fairly straight forward setup in our VTA-ish class. Granted, I'm running a 2015, but I would imagine the 2014 should take the setup well too.
Start with kit
2.5 springs all around, 35 weight oil all around
Droop at 7 on the Hudy gauge all around (so 1.5mm or so front and rear)
2.5* of toe-in in the back, 1* of toe-out in the front. You can do 3* of toe in the back if you need to lock the rear in more on fresh carpet.
3K diff in the back, you can try 5K on slippery new carpet, or 2K if you need more rotation
2.5 million diff in the front with DCJs
All screws in the top deck, including the 4 in the layshaft (though this is kit I think)
1.4mm sway front, 1.3mm sway rear
1* of camber all around, you can try 1.5* or 2* if you need more corner grip, but I find that 1* wears the tires nice and even
+0.75 hexes in the front (so that the VTA wheels don't hit the steering knuckle), +1.5 hexes in the rear for added stability
Shocks in stock position, though you can stand the rear up 1 hole (so outside most hole) if you want quicker rotation, you can also lay the front down 1 hole but made my car a bit lazy
I'm going from memory but that's basically it. The car is very easy to drive, but my feeling is that this isn't the fastest setup. For a nervous/twitchy driver like myself, though, it works well. Lots of mechanical grip and very smooth.
