isn't "rapid start" a magnetic term? i thought that electronic's were referred to as "instant start". maybe it's just advertising, and you can call it whatever you want, but it sure sounds like you're using a magnetic ballast. especially the 2x40w T12 part.... electronic ballasts are almost always rated as 2x32 4x32, etc... since they're designed for use with T8s, which are 32w at the T8 diameter and 4ft length. If the ballast is a 2x40w T12, then the odds are *very* high that it's magnetic.
