Laptop mount
« on: December 29, 2010, 10:18:21 AM »
I need to keep a laptop inside my car for data logging and adjustments. Is there any spec on what you need to do to mount a laptop for speed runs?

We tried everything we could think of to run our laptap to data record. Don't know if it was vibration, high ignition noise or salt worms in the air, but the computer would always die and we never got any data. It worked fine in the pits warming up the motor but could never get any run data. Good luck on your attempt. Let us know if you can make it work.
