+1 on that. You need to align all your pedals nicely and you're in more need of a leg less hi-hat than any drummer in history (most of us DB players have just the 2 pedals to contend with on our left side- 3 makes things trickier)!
Had to read through your post a couple of times before I understood what you were doing but it makes sense if you want the sound from two different bass drums.
While a clamp attachment from the hoop of your left bass drum to your hi-hat stand will solve that problem, not sure what you can do bout the slave. As long as the connecting rod doesn't interfere with the primary beater of your left bass I guess it's all good?
