Yes I have the same issue on wet roads. It only happens from a stop. It is the brakes grabbing as the TC engages. The speed a which the tires are spinning then the brakes trying to stop the spinning causes the violent thud. The wheels do not spin as easily on dry roads so not as violent when TC kicks in.

I'm wondering what will happen in snow. Same effect or not as violent.
