No, but I have not tried all possible launch scenarios and I am not stock.
The streets in my area come in two flavors - concrete residential and asphalt thoroughfares. The concrete is abrasive and provides great traction, but I don't launch even moderately hard in residential subdivisions so I don't know whether I would have wheel hop on the concrete or not.
The asphalt thoroughfares, in stark contrast, provide lousy traction right now. We have had the driest summer in recorded history here and the asphalt is oily slick. It doesn't take much for the V to spin on this asphalt and I have had no wheel hop during moderate or relatively hard launches (including hard shifts to second gear) on this asphalt.

As this has apparently become an inexplicably prurient issue in this thread, I'm happy to announce that I am once again a supporting member.
For those folks that still feel compelled to find some minutae to complain about on an internet forum, may I suggest something along the lines of jumping on the 'Why didn't you install this within 4 picoseconds of getting it in your front door' bandwagon? SkullV has the right idea, he was following both tacks admirably.
I'm just as anxious as anyone to find out whether this is The One Solution(tm) for our wheelhop and by extension our diff mankyness (mine is a good test case in that respect, I have a diff that's less than a month old), and I assure everyone I'll have this in and tested as soon as humanly possible.
