Cool xr 6 quirks

Hi Guys, new to xr 6 ute, brand new, 2013. ZF auto, traction control, etc. Have been running in for 2000 k's, very happy so far except for intermittent flashing traction control light, also thumping in the drive line on down changes. Happened 5 times so far. Hasn't happened with traction control off.
Any ideas as to what's occurring?
Anybody else experienced the same?

Intermittent flashing traction control light. = wheels spinning. Thumps in drive line normal, more so when coming to a stop and power on and off situations. Enjoy mate!

Hi Teak 81, thanx for reply. Any more info on thumping driveline? Exactly what is happening? Can it do damage to tail shaft, tranny or diff?
