You can limit the hits at 1 hit/second (60/minute) - 
8/minute is quite LOW, and therefore you may want to 
use the bandwidth limiter (to something like 100 
bytes/s), and 1 connection, this may be sufficient.
If not, you may have to use the -V option (execute an 
external command after each file being stored) with 
something like -V "sleep 8" - for example in the 
filter list, add:
-V "C:\winnt\sleep.exe 1"

(the sleep.exe program must be present)
