I've e-mailed the builder of these trikes. He thinks we need to have 4 wheels. He said
"if you want to make a tandem where you sit one behind the other you may be able to use them. a side by side trike would require a completely different approach. if you are on trails you would be better off with 4 wheels to distribute the load over the softer trail. you are not on a hard surface. you could add bigger brakes like a go cart brake on the rear axle. remember you will have the weight of 2 people and the weight of the quad to stop."
I've got the plans, so we can adapt parts.
