Can't you replace the EPROM with a fast access RAM with a small battery?
I seem to remember that 2kbyte RAM chips, pin compatible were available
in the 100 ns range. Not sure 6116's were that fast, but perhaps the larger
types 8 kbytes were that fast.  I know, they have 4 more pins, but that
can be solved with a small kludged socket.
With 2 pull-up resistors and 2 DIPswitches you can put 4 experiments in
one 8 kbyte chip :-)  BTW, weren't 27256's and 27512's in the 100 ns range?
