Any thoughts on the fastest way to strap down a car?

After recently strapping my car down in an enclosed trailer in full-fledged summer heat I was wondering if the people have suggestions on a quick way to strap down a car.

 

I've been using 4 straps that form a kind of "double X" in which front right is hooked to the floor behind the rear left, rear right is hooked to the floor in front of the left front, and so on and so forth.

 

This can typically take between 6 and 8 minutes to complete, at the end of which (during summer) I often look and feel like I just stepped out of Finland's fiercest sauna.

Strapping in the car at the end of the weekend is my least favorite thing to do. I use a pair of short, fixed length straps in the front, and two straps in the rear going straight back. I don't love the fixed straps in the front because it is almost impossible to get the car perfectly centered on them and usually the car will shift a little on the road. I have purchased, but not yet installed a pair of lashing winches to replace the fixed front.
