It took me a while to figure out the wiring to bypass the signals to make it run on its own, then tricking the controller by raising the disk up with stuff so that it can't read its own rpm's therefore making it run at its max potential. The controller can handle upto 7v before getting hot and normal is 5v.

The Fan is to load test it so I can see how much torque it can output. When its reading a floppy disk it only spins at 33rpm and even with 7v it runs at the same rpm. So after this "hacking" it, spins around 10k rpm (guessing).
