Cons might include not easily being able to adjust the preload like you can with vertically mounted shocks(but you can still do it...just a bit more difficult since you can't wrap your fingers all the way around the shock body when the shocks are mounted). Also the stock Revo pushrods seem to be a weak link and bend easily...this can be fixed with upgrades though so I wouldn't say pushrods in general would be a con to this cantilever type suspension setup. To some people weight might be an issue since you're basically adding pushrods, rocker mounts and the rocker arms. I can't really think of anything else right now...it seems to have more pros than cons in my opinion.

The in board suspension system on the Revo is awesome. Some day there will be a buggy that utilizes it. I've seen it used on a rally car.
