I've been running a QR with the horizontal drops on my P bike for a while now. Yes, it works and is secure enough for all the abuse I can give it. HOWEVER, after every ride the wheel moves just enough to make the rear disc rub and squeak on the caliper. Aside from the brake rubbing it is solid.

well biked is right, using an internal cam QR lever can hold a lot more clamping force. I am using a cheap no name one from a path and pavement bike.

I have also cut "shims" from a kick stand to wedge between the axle and the front of the drop outs. This essentially "bottoms out" the axle in the drop out and eliminates forward movement.

See if any of this helps enough to make it ride able.

Rearward movement is still going to be an issue. I have contemplated rigging up chain tugs that pull the axle forwards instead of to the back.
