I once hit recently spilled diesel 3 parts of the way around a fairly tight bend with good visibilty & wind blowing wrong way to let smell give a warning.
As soon as I saw it, I lifted off, but the Rover 25 rear end broke loose. Not wishing to end up in a ditch or the field beyond, I steered into the slide & grabbed the handbrake, executing an extremely neat 180 bring the car to a halt, travelling backwards still on the tarmac.
The next car counter-steered & went into the ditch sideways, followed by a transit that just went through the hedge.
Warning triangles were deployed until assistance arrived. The car behind me (the one in the ditch) had a dash cam & great footage of my reaction which went out on the TV report.
Each time I change my car I take the first opportunity to test the limits and reactions on flooded and icy open spaces. With FWD, lifting off is usually the best first option - the front will tend to tuck in without flicking the back end out.
