Just in case it isn't well known, you can start the logging process in TunerStudio before the MicroSquirt is powered up
TunerStudio will just wait until data appears, and happily pause between runs.

Regarding the false sensor indication comment, from memory your CP sensor is 12v fed rather than being fed from the 5v sensor power from the MicroSquirt. Depending on the internal circuitry of the unit it may be unhappy with the voltage drop during cranking and either getting confused or shutting down.
Most automotive rated equipment - including the Microsquirt, have what is called a Low Drop-Out (LDO) voltage regulator. Meaning the 5v output is stable down at a one to two volt differential between input and output. Therefore at 7v we still get a stable 5v output from the Microsquirt, and if the sensor is without the LDO rating it may be unhappy at 10v or more.
