One of the ideas for the 1450 drive was to buffer the whole track and write the data backwards from the buffer without switching rotation, since almost all copy protection was on disk intended to be drive1, this would make access faster on the extra drives and maintained compatibility across all the drives... copy protected disks worked fine on drive 1 and 3, and drives 2 and 4 could still read and write disk understood by all..... the buffer was key... without it...way too big of a performance hit.....
