Everything has its place, straight axles are preferred for slow speed off roading down trails or through mud.

The main disadvantage is a loss of ride quality on the street, but who cares about that if you're doing an SAS anyway?
IFS is great for street performance and high speed desert and dirt track racing, anything where a soft ride at high speeds is needed. Especially when running large tires and high power parts tend to break and they aren't cheap to replace.
