My slot car club is moving away from clumsy manual lapcounting to using a PC. Photosensors under the track 'talk' to the PC via a printer cable connected to a special card inside.
It occurs to me that it would be bloddy amazing if the display could be seen by the drivers as well as race control. The software has a 'large font' setting for just this occurance.
However to do this properly would involve a second and large monitor wired in and facing the drivers.
Is it possible to connect a second monitor? Bearing in mind we will be using a laptop and that said machine will already have the extra lapcounting card installed, I would imagine the device by which the second (CRT) monitor is connected would have to be external?
