wtf happened?!

28º out and i took a turn a bit too fast- drifted sideways through the turn going 20-30mph and had to counter-steer like crazy to get back in a straight line.. after that, the steering wheel was shaking violently and the car felt really wobbly. it went away after 20-30 seconds, but now i notice when i drive 50+mph the steering wheel is shaking a bit and it's a tad wobbly. wtf happened? this all happened an hour ago. i did NOT hit anything. just drifted sideways while counter-steering.

Not an expert, but here's what I'd do:
Check all lug nuts for proper torque, check front strut mounting bolts top & bottom.

Did you have a recent alignment? Maybe they didn't tighten all the bolts and it's way, way out of adjustment now.

Not only that but if you have the OEM Perelli tires they suck at that temp.

That would have been my third guess. I have water accumulate in the inner barrels of my Forgeline wheels when it rains and it makes them go out of balance. They make a thing called a water diverter that mounts to the inner barrel that pushes the water out to prevent that. It would be pretty severe if that water froze when the car was parked. 3 or 4 ounces of ice would make a big shimmy.
