I've experienced this also. Only in the winter. I can also attest to the lack of warning, which gets your attention fast! Thankfully I never went 180 degrees, and was always able to bring it back in line pretty quick. First couple of times it happened I thought there might be something wrong with the car, as I had driven it much more aggressively during the summer with nothing but fantastic grip in the corners. My tires were brand new, so it wasn't tire wear. I came to believe it was due to the low winter temps causing the Z rated tires to be pretty hard. I take those immediate turns from a stop more slowly in the winter now. Eventually I'd like to get some wheels with winter tires.
