I and even a very experienced instructor have done 360 degree spins in either direction with DSC off. A guy on here who I introduced to the track crashed with his 335I because he ignored this warning, that I gave him in person, at the track.

Just FYI.
I dunno, the car didn't seem that unstable to me before the LSD, and definitely not afterwards.

Of course spins can happen, especially driving it at the limit on the track. Watch a race lately? Those guys crash too.

You aren't going to learn to drive the car with the traction control on. Period.

And to be clear: Don't bring anything to the track you aren't willing to destroy. Use caution and prudence out on the street where conditions are unknown and other people are out there too.
