talking of all things speed wise, Just a little tip which might help make your disk dumps more reliable. Some protections seem to come out better when the drive speed is set as close to 300 rpm as possible. I've noticed that after an hour or so of use, the motor on my 1541 seems to spin slightly faster. For example if I use the rpm1541 program that comes with open cbm as soon as I turn my drive on, it might say the disk is spinning at 299.85 rpm, but a couple of hours later if I try it again, it says the disk is spinning at 300.21rpm.
I've no idea if this is a common issue with all drives though, just make sure the speed doesn't go above or below 300rpm for best results.
