I often ponder that if he were on something with more wheelbase and slacker angles, would he be even stronger? Similar to what you're saying but coming at it from the positive side. Sort of like when Stevie (and others) were moving from 26-inch wheels to 27.5. They didn't like it but (I've heard) the clock consistently showed he was faster when testing. Would it benefit Sam? Possibly. Would he enjoy riding it as much? Maybe not.
