Every guy here has learned some hard lessons in one way or another. You went to where you could do no harm and learned yourself. Its all good.
I'm old and grew up on bias ply tires, drum brakes, and so on in a time when product liability wasn't even a lawyers wet dream. lol Hell, my mom could drive a stick and countersteer when the rear end came around. Nowdays you have all the fancy new hardware and well sorted handling, nannies, all that fun stuff. I think where I'm going is a hpde might not be a bad idea if you want to hang that ass out. Not throwing stones at you, I think I learned as many hard lessons as anyone. HPDEs are a lot of fun and what you will learn will serve you well in many an ass hanging out session in the future. This does not have to be brutally expensive, car clubs and such often have track days that you can join in for fairly cheap. Hell, I went to a P car event in my corvette. Thought I would get grief from them but they didn't care, a car guy is a car guy and it was all about having some fun.
Dont discount getting yourself some learning just because of some holier than thous, you will have a good time and learn a lot. I know I did.
