All I can say is if you are a slow driver like me, then the R11 is the way to go.
But if you are a fast driver like Andrea Christiani or Mike Swauger the Central Lola is the Body to have.

I'm still running the "R" but the Central is the best handling body I've ran so far. The car is planted in the rear but it has so much steering but not "twitchy". Very fast in the corners.

HI Guys, of course my suggestions will be towards Central and for sure i have a biased opinion. But just looking at the facts, the majority of the people, with different level of driving skills, prefer the Central body, at least in USA.
I think the reason is because they like it better than the other ones

Hope this info can help in your decision

We have tested both the R11 and the Central back to back, at numerous times at different track on different cars. They both feel very similar, and turn nearly identical lap times in my experience. Cicarrello swears that the R11 is a tenth faster at Toledo, I haven't seen that. I turn the same laptimes with either body everywhere I go.

The R11 in my opinion is a little smoother than the central. The Central turns in a little harder, but I think the total amount of net steering is the same. Also the street pricing on the R11 is about 15% less than the Central. They are both really good bodies, probably the only 2 choices right now, unless some of these new closed cockpits take off.
