Sidecar wheel lead might contribute to the low speed wobble. Also tweaking the steering head bearing up a bit tighter than you’d normally run on a solo may help a bit.

Mine runs straight & doesn’t wobble at all, so it is possible to tune it out.

You can use the drive & brakes to drive around the heavy steering. However even with less trail, mine still beats me up going over the Rimutaka (though I don’t go slow).
