I was the US reseller for Racelogic for a few years, before they discontinued the traction control boxes (and I tried to buy the remainder of their stock).  Unfortunately they're extremely hard to find new, although they do pop up used.
There are two configurations you'll see - RLTC8DIA is the product you want.  8cyl, digital adjuster, with launch control, and designed to use the vehicles magnetic (VR) wheel-speed sensors. 
Stay away from the RLTC8DIAW, which is designed to use switches that produce a square wave rather than a sine wave.

Used pricing ranges anywhere from $1000-$2000, depending on perceived rarity.  Don't worry about getting the CD with it (software is not super useful) or the harness being chopped up/etc, it's easy to pin in new connectors and the installation is relatively straightforward.

For future reference, here's a link to the manual with wiring diagrams at the end https://1drv.ms/b/s!Aj0Boq1humv-gax7cS5YeS6tCheyrA

There are a number of aftermarket ECUs out there that allow you to run TC for not a whole lot more than a RL TC setup.

Holley (separate box needed from Davis unless this has changed)
MS3 ProU
AEM
Haltech
ProEFI
plus others

The MS3 being the cheapest but probably most involved. The others are all in the $2-3k range. My MS3 setup was about $1600 total but I built my own harness.
94 BB SBE LS1 Full Mamo top, MS3ProU with TC, RONIN 8.8 and another custom dual 2.5" stainless exhaust. Too loud, need bigger muffler....

Just for clarification, Holley can be done with zero add ons (you can program ign. retards using front/rear wheel speed sensors), with a $500 software add on (time based) for drag racing/standing mile type racing, or with the Davis TC boxes.
