Does anyone have any experience clamping RR along with running LR behind floater?

If you clamp the RR of a latemodel, why would you want to do that?

I heard most chassis at the PRI show had clamp brackets on both sides---could this help a radical "3 wheeling" setup?

I dont see the right rear being clamped a help at all in this situation. Unless the coilover indexed away from the chassis under acceleration, and that means that certain geometry settings have to be set on the RR trailing arms.

I haven't done this myself but did hear second hand about someone that did try clamping both the left and right side birdcages a couple years ago. It really helped the forward bit on acceleration but he had a very hard time getting the car to turn at the end of the straight. Again - just heard this second-hand!!
