What is the definition of a "Standing Start" in terms of the Elise ECU Dump?

Yes I have searched, but came up with nothing :shrug:

So in my thought it would be whatever throttle position that would take me to 5 - 6 RPM and dump the clutch while stomping on to full throttle (like an autocross, or drag strip start or something).

Does anyone know how it is defined by Lotus in the ECU dump printout? I have heard the question in the past, but never heard anyone answer.

I have personally never done a standing start in the terms I have mentioned above, but may have in Lotus's terms (depending on what they are)

Thanks!

i forget exactly, but from memory its time/distance related too, its basically the formula that says its impossible to cover a set distance in under a time without a standing start.

Are there any everyday scenerios where a standing start would occur?
Is a record of this on a dump report always a notice of abuse or can they be acceptible/normal behavior?

Thanks Charlie!

boy thats a loaded question!

not that i know of, a clutch drop alone isn't enough to trigger it, and again on memory it has to pass a certain speed too, but its been a while since i last looked at it.
