Surfacing Maple

I’m trying to surface a couple of 5.5" x 24" 1/4" thick maple boards down to 1/8" with my pro xl. I did one with the CC feeds and speeds for hardwood with the 205 endmill .04 doc 60ipm feed 18000 rpm .125 stepover. Aside from a little surface tear out, it worked pretty well. Only issue i had was it took over an hour. Think there is some wiggle room here to bump those f&s up a bit?

If you must do this sort of thing, remove half the thickness from one side, then flip over and remove the balance.
