Car veers right and left when spinning the wheels

08 135i manual, when I turn off the traction control and try to accellerate hard in 1st or 2nd as soon as the tires break loose the car veers right or left severely.

I literally almost crashed when I romped on it in 2nd going straight, the rear went sideways instantly and I almost slapped the car next to me.

Going up freeway onramps in the rain, when I spin the wheels the car lurches right-left-right, and goes anything but straight. It literally changes lanes, and I can barely hang on to the car, going straight.

It is so bad I've stopped hotrodding the car, this condition is really unsafe.

Is this the E-diff? Could it be alignment (the car is properly aligned)?
