Default Roland HD-1 Question

Yesterday I purchased a Roland HD-1 'V-Drums Lite' electronic kit for practice purposes. The only gripe I have with it are the pedals - they are, quite frankly, absolute shite. If you're playing double-bass at any speed above 160-170BPM 16th-notes, the kick samples don't trigger. And considering that these days most of the songs I play are in the 220-240BPM range, it creates problems.

I thought about buying a separate Roland electronic kick pad and hooking my double pedal up to it, then connecting the pad to the kit using the right pedal's output jack. But first I'd have to disconnect the existing pedals from the rack system to be able to make room. Is this possible?

Here is a picture of the HD-1 kit, for those who are unfamiliar ...
