The s2k had some revisions recently to the suspension to help dial out the tendency to snap oversteer. Looking at that vid, as soon as the driver released the brake, you can see the left front almost immediately countersteering.

If the driver mis-matched revs bad enough to cause a spin, you'd see the rears lock up.
