wtf just happened?

i was experimenting with dsc to see how the car handled without its use. i took a turn at moderate speed and hit the throttle relatively lightly to induce a skid at apex. before i knew it i was in free spin, and completed ~2 full spins before stopping, during which the car stalled. when i restarted the car, the engine warning light came on, and the redline was set at ~5k. i drove carefully the half mile home - warning light stayed on whole time

i was surprised at how dramatically the car responded with dsc off. when on, my car would enter a slight skid, cut power to the wheels and i would regain traction. i'm not sure what happened with dsc off, inputs please!
