Default TCS battery question

This might be a dumb question but I gotta know. I want to keep my car TCS legal and need to get a battery for it. The Tamiya website list batteries that are legal but I am having a hard time finding where to buy them. How do I know if a certain Trinity, Duratrax or Orion battery conforms to the list of approved cells.

Sanyo NI-CD 2400, Sanyo NI-MH HV 3000, 3300 & 3600

Panasonic 3000 Ultra Metal Hydride, Panasonic 3000 Stock Metal Hydride

GP (Gold Peak) 3300 & 3700, 4300, 4600

Intellect Batteries 3600, 3800 and LRP 3700, 4200, 4600

EPIC 3800, EP 4600.

Thanks all!

Cool TCS batteries!

Just about any NIMH batteries are legal except for the Novice class. Novice class has a limit on battery size and it must be a stick pack, not sure the limit. It probably depends on which TCS race you are running, it may very a little based on availiblity in your area.
As long as the battery is no larger than 5000mah in Lipo or NIMH and it has a MFG. sticker on it or battery distributor ie PROMATCH, BROOD RACING ,EA Motorsports etc etc. it should be legal!
Just my 2$
