The idea was to restore the D64 to disk again in case a program relies on 
dealing with a real floppy. FC3 is such a 'program'. But as a D64 cannot 
store the order of sectors, I won't be able to restore the original floppy 
anyway. And a program checking the order of sectors will crash anyway on 
1541IDE as it doesn't provide SYNC and headers. 

Hallo allemaal,

FYI: I was able to bring back the time to 35 seconds by reducing the 
interleave to 4 for three of the four density areas. Now a bit of tinkering 
with stepping the head and maybe I'll get another one or two seconds off.
