It sounds like you're describing DriveWire.  We've pushed the CoCo 2  
to 38400 bps reliably, and a CoCo 3 to 57600 bps using the  
bitbanger.  Both NitrOS-9 and Disk BASIC environments support the  
protocol for disk access.  The protocol is documented and available  
from www.cloud9tech.com on our support page.

What do you have in mind?
