why is front gear so low on CRJ-900

Keep this trivial knowledge on the CRJ coming. This is the kind of stuff that sticks in my brain and is useful to waste time in recurrent. “Which hydraulic pumps turn on when what!? I don’t know... But check this out man, did you know the CRJ900’s nose gear height was set at the maximum allowable limit so they didn’t have to put exit slides on it?”
