Default What does auto-start on your timeslip REALLY mean??

We were at the track the other day, and some of my friends were sayin with auto-start "ON" take your R.T off of E.T. in my many years of drag racing, my ET has never been effected by this... but i have friends who swear, with A.S. "ON" to take your R.T. off your ET... from my understanding all auto start is, is the time between the STAGE lights, and the first yellow... HELP ME SETTLE THIS H-T Drag Racers!!

Auto start just means that once a racer has lit both bulbs, the other racer has 7 seconds to get in the 2nd bulb before he is DQ'd. It has nothing to do with your ET or even RT for that matter , just used in competition.
