It seems that mechanically, the longer nails will accentuate the problem of making the tremolo on the 1st 2nd and 3rd strings have a consistent sound. Of course, we try to make the fingers work consistently no matter what string is involved, but the finger must arch more for the 3rd string than the 1st, which means it automatically "wants" to hit the 3rd string with more nail.
Geewhiz! Maybe that's why I don't like tremolo!
