Hi Geoffrey,

Yes, this is normal - this is exactly what it is designed to do. As you found on bitumen when wet/greasy, the traction control kicks in to ensure the vehicles stability and all 4 (2 actually, but that is another story) wheels are driving.

The noise you are hearing mostly, is the brakes coming on and off - very much like ABS breaking. It forces the power to the other wheel, which (in theory) has traction.

All this should be in the manual somewhere
