Automating Manual Slide out crank

Has anyone used a long shaft split nut crank rod with a drill to speed up the manual cranking of a dead slide.
Is there a problem with running the manual link at a higher speed than manual?

There are lots of reports of people using a cordless drill to manually operate slides.

I don't know of any drills that run at high enough speeds to be a problem for the slide mechanism.
