Gary- You can select neutral at any time by pulling back on both the upshift and downshift paddles simultaneously. You should actually be doing that before you start the car to make it a little easier on the system. It will select neutral for you if you start in 1st or reverse, but the OMs recommend neutral for start. Treat the car as if it is a three pedal car without the third pedal and do the same things you would do with a manual shifter and you will enjoy the F1 system.
Not sure I have ever tried any full lock starts in my car, but that makes it rough on any car since it is pushing on the front tires rather than rolling at first. You might try starting with wheels pointed straight and then cranking in lock after she starts moving. Widens the turn a bit, but should prevent the stalling.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
