Default Wheel Base Question?

I have a wheel base question. I'm an oval guy gone to offroad due to an offroad track being close to home. I have held many guys say the Losi 2.0 buggy turns harder because the wheel base is longer than the 1.0. This is a 180 degrees different from an oval car. On oval shorter wheel base = harder turning but less stability. Can someone explain why I've heard a longer chassis turns harder on offroad?

Check out this video from Adam Drake on wheel base. This might help.
