Robot R/C Car

My current project is a joint effort with my friend Vinny. He has allowed me to work on his project of transforming a R/C car into a robot that can be controlled from the internet. The car was stripped of everything except the wheels, chassis, servos (motors), and power switch/power cord. Vinny then added a Parallax BASIC Stamp electronic board to plug into the servos controlling the front and rear tires. The electronic board is then plugged into an Asus Eee PC through USB which is mounted on to the car.  The Asus Eee is connected to a WIFI signal or to a 3G wireless internet signal and can be controlled remotely. Here are some pictures of the mount for the laptop:
