Thanks. I've been looking for info on MPD all over the internet but can't find anything really, nothing beyond what I already know about the controls anyway. Hell, it was easier when my brother installed a set for me that I bought off eBay.
are you quads using a low effort brake system?

I think you are being incredibly patient Chas, and I applaud you for it. I agree, it could have just been a last minute mistake, and better to give them a chance to respond. Whatever you do, don't let anyone back down from getting the chair you designed and signed off on.
Just as a note, should you ever want to consider a ZX-1 power add-on, it would probably be impossible with that added bracket.

Don't know if that's what you're after, but if so, have you tried to only partially attach clamshell with the clamshell actuator button? I don't do so until I get to a bump - at that

The real solution came by adding a proximity switch that reduced the speed to 40% when the manual wheelchair's

I'm not sure many people would be satisfied with 3.2 mph, I certainly wasn't and have adjusted mine accordingly.
