You have to try pretty hard to get it to do dumb things on the street/highway, even with DSC OFF.

Mustang, but I've driven FF2000 at Skip Barber school and lapping (always dry).

With DSC off, all it'd take is some dry weather tires worn down to say 30% and a little rain after a few dry weeks. Maybe the limited slip isn't tight enough, but I'm guessing that it is, based on the way that both wheels light up under acceleration and it steps out toward the downslope of the road crown, even with MDM on. I don't plan to find out in real world circumstances and there's no point in testing your luck.
