Other folks have covered the write speed of the camera to empty the buffer.

Based on the numbers you are giving, the other possibility is that you need to give time for the speedlights to recharge. If you are running at 1/25 power, you can get about 25 rapid shots before the power is drained. Then you need to wait for the recharge.
