Your link is to "Quick Change Rear ends" and the price tag on them will reflect accordingly. (I couldn't afford one.)
Having been involved in Stock car racing I recognize them, the Solectria ones aren't quick change.
Most back yard Race Car/Hot-Rod builders use a Ford 9" or a 12 bolt GM because they can get the gear ratios they want and they can stand the torque. (Unless they have very deep pockets.)
I just wondered what they came from, having never ran across one in any of my junk yards.
I posted a picture of mine on my EVAlbum page earlier today.
