Does the neck length effect a guitar's ability to drop tune?
For example, can a 25.5 scale guitar tune to Drop C easier than a 24.75 could?

Not sure. But i kno baritones, which have like a 28" scale length i think, are often tuned down pretty far. i think that a 25" scale guitar's strings might not go floppy like they would on a 24.75" would.

I am not entirely sure, but I know that guitars are specifically designed on the professional level for lower tunings. I think this is one of those things where string guage, scale length and intonation will all play a part...

I tune a couple of my guitars down a whole step and often use dropped C tuning and I haven't really had any problems. I know a lot of guys that hit the studio in that tuning and even lower and never have issues too.

But I'm curious to see what other will say...

generally, yeah.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
