Default Pearl Demon Drive Slave Beater Problem

Hey guys, just got my demon drives today and while messing around with the pedal, i found that the slave beater kind of stops before it hits the head of the drum, even when i apply a large force on the slave pedal.

It's kind of hard to explain but, just wanted to ask if anyone has ever had the same problem and knows how to fix it? Some people say the slave footboard height might be too low. I'll try that when I get back home. I'll also post a video later showing the actual problem. Thanks in advance!

I don't own one of these, but that logically sounds like problem. Adjust the angle on the pedal and you should be good to go. Or you might be able to also adjust the beater angle on the cam / shaft. Most pedals will allow you to adjust both the pedal angle and the beater distance.
