i think recording at 48K/24bit results in a data rate of about 141KB/sec. So eight tracks would be 1.13MB/sec.

Looking up your drive, it appears to be advertised as having a (theoretical) transfer rate of about 175MB/sec, so it seems like you should be okay.
BTW, how did you calculate those numbers?
