it takes pretty deep water to get your clutch wet.
you were experiencing traction control, the only way to completely turn it off involves cutting wires. for instance, I could turn it off and do donuts in a wet field all day, but if I were buried in a mudhole and I mashed it to the floor, all 4 tires would NOT keep spinning faster and faster until I was bouncing off the rev limiter. mine is an auto, so things might be a little different, but I doubt it.
you were in 4 low right?
I was experiencing the same problem in this picture, only I killed the engine because I thought I hydrolocked.
this hole gets the award for being the most deceiving puddle in history, here is a sammie with a few inches of lift on 33's.
