I think that for asphalt, the Yokomo LCG is faster than the Pro4. I say this because it has a lower center of gravity and a more flexible chassis. This helps out b/c the flex in the chassis smooths out the imperfections in the asphalt, or in the setup. And the lower center of gravity helps keep all 4 wheels contacting the asphalt without needing swaybars or a stiff setup.
I haven't driven my Yokomo on carpet with foams, but from what other Yokomo drivers have said, the chassis flex slows it down b/c it has too much traction and binds up the car in the corners.
The Pro4 definately takes the cake as being an awesome car out of the box. The setup on this car rocks with a front one-way or spool on asphalt in a stock class. It's not a great setup for mod, but it was the easiest car I've ever owned to make fast with the stock setup.
Jim, you can't go wrong with either car. I'd say that if your going to be racing on asphalt only, get the Yokomo LCG. If you might race carpet once in a while, get the Pro4 b/c it will be a good car on both surfaces.
