I'd keep MDM on at a minimum until you learn how to properly react and correct a potential spin. I had a friend who knew in theory how to correct a spin, and did a few track days with DSC off with no problems. Then one day it happened and he just wasn't fast enough and spun into a wall.
It's pretty much a fact that once you drive with DSC off and start pushing to go faster, the rear will come out more often and you need to be ready for that situation.
