Kumpol-Kawahara and maybe one or two other companies make 200mm lola bodies. They honestly don't help much as it won't make the car handle no where near that of the 235mm class or 8th onroad...with or without the floating rear mounts. I had one on my R40 and I didn't really notice a difference. It's just the feeling of expecting a difference and after not driving for a while makes you think there was a change. I drove the car with the same setup and tested the skyline GTR body and Kawahara Lola; there wasn't a change. There went my $20
I was responding to your woes about the rubber tire setup. Heavy diff or spool, up front. A one-way with solid rear is only suitable for very large, flowing tracks where you're on the gas for the most part. Also you only want to use that type of setup with foam tires, due to the nature of the one-way, requiring high traction to work efficiently.
Also make sure you're not using very soft rubbers. You want to stay above a 27R range, 32R+ recommended (as in 32°C rated tires or above). This is because the lower temp rated tires will heat up almost instantly and start loosing grip because of overheating.
As for the lola vs sedan bodies.. with the Lola you should be able to enter corners faster and in general have more grip all around.. basically tons more downforce resulting in more grip.
