Default Mounting Netbook for XFI

Not new, just new to me. Works great at the track and on the street.

Details? I have a netbook also. It was one of the best investments for the car. I'd like to make a mount also. What did you use for supports, and how did you attach it? Thanks in advance.

11.3@123mph on 195/75/14" whitewalls. Yes, 195s!
11.2 on the big giant slicks. What's the point? Maybe I'll go back to the whitewalls. They are lighter and have less rolling resistance.

Default Mounting Netbook for XFI

Using the top two bolts on the a/c control box, I bent two braces around the top of the dash and drilled holes into the braces and the back of the netbook (in a safe spot). I also had to slightly modify (cut) the a/c stereo faceplate to fit the braces.

Clear as mud...?

Cool. Thanks. Is it easily removable, or do you have to unbolt the brackets?

Until I can figure out a quick release, I have to unbolt from a/c screws under radio cover.

i have the acer one 8" screen and mounting was simple

piece of 10" velcro across radio pod top and on underside of laptop and small bracket i made from some 1.5" wide 1/16 flat stock that is pushed in above the vent (no screws)

takes only a second to pull it from the car or to install and so far it has shown no signs of moving even with a t-brake launch
