I hadn't thought of trying shorter bursts. Makes sense as it would give the buffer time to clear. With my D300 shooting 12 bit RAW at 8 fps I don't remember running into the buffer over run situation. Shooting 14 bit with my D3 it was noticeable. I was shooting a Rodeo, so I was looking for 8 to 10 seconds, that of course didn't happen. I see that I will have to work on my timing a bit as the spray and pray approach won't work I am curious though if there is an easy way to compute my max sustainable speed for when I don't need super high rates. Perhaps a lower rate with a longer burst would be more than enough. I shoot Jousting, air shows, rodeos those are the only events where high frame rates matter. Everything else I do is usually single shot or very low speed.
