Well actually they are.  But only quiet enough to meet race regs on  noise 
I don't like Supertraps for the street. They look odd and don't really do  
the job people expect in the street environment.  Exhaust tone certainly  
isn't a design criterion for them, just getting under that limit is the 
driving  force.
I have seen, or rater heard much better results from adapting modern  
mufflers to old cars.  They have small bodied mufflers that fit under MGs  made 
by the large manufacturers.  I use a Magnaflow that has an OD of only  6" 
diameter in the Jamaican, and it fits nicely between gas tank and leaf  
springs.  Most of these mufflers only come in 2.5" size as the smallest and  
MG systems are only 1 7/8" or maybe 2" at largest even in so called sports  
systems, but you can just use an adaptor on each end.  If it is still a bit  
too rorty for you, just add a small resonator tip to remove any residual 
bark  and you have a very nice street MG system.
