Frame/Chassis specs

I'm just wondering what specs would be the most advantagoues for riding in sandy trails and dunes.
Wanting front and rear tracking widths, and wheelbase dims.
Everyone talks extended this, extended that.
Just curious what SPECS most riders/builders call IDEAL.

Re: Frame/Chassis specs

Surely someone has some info/remarks.
I'm thinking we want to go as wide as possible, but some rules limit width to (50")
Is there rules limiting Wheelbase?
Too long and we lose turning
are we looking for something in the 52-54" range.

50" is pretty dang wide for any quad. MX tracks limit it to 50", but that is pretty good in itself. If you go longer, say a +4 a-arm, you will start to really affect your steering (depending on the tie-rods used). Furthermore, you can go with a +3 arm, and get a bigger off set wheel.
