Pros -
Better weight transfer
Nose won't dip as much when hard at the brakes at the finish line which can trip the lights for a break out

Cons -
Wrong spring rate used for the front weight which also means the front shocks can do very little to control suspension movement.
Too much air gets under the car

When it comes to stock suspension, it's often a "neccessary evil". You can only get so low in the back w/o having to re-work the tunnel, flooboards, and/or tq arm(which may not be legal for some clas racing) and with that in mind, you can only have so much rake angle before the suspension geometry and CG get too far out of whack for the chassis to work well.

You can run the correct spring rate no matter what the ride height is, you just have to run the proper length coil to get the pre-load right.
