    Yes it will fit, your Telly uses the same diff as a slash and stampede 4x4.

    Thanks for the reply shaky17. I'm running 500k in both diffs now. I might have to give the hot racing diff locks a try later just to see how the telluride responds to locked diffs

    The Telluride loves locked diffs but come way off the power in the turns.
    Here is a tip for ya.... To lock the diffs.... Silly putty is a whole lot cheaper then any thing else you can buy.

    That 500k diff oil is ridiculous to work with its like tree sap. I'll try silly putty next. How long does the silly putty last in there before it starts to break down? Is it a permanent fix?

    I'm not sure how long it will last being as I put it into my diffs only about 2 months ago but so for so good. My diffs are still locked. What I like about the silly putty most is that it's not permanent and 1 egg of silly putty ( @ 1-2 $'s ) will lock at least 6 diffs. It's easy to remove so I can always go back to diff oil if I so choose.

    This is how I did my diffs:

    NOTES:
    --- use a tooth pick to push the putty into all open spaces as you go.
    --- You don't need to re-install the seals or gasket. (the putty will not leak out)

    1- Disassemble the diff and clean all parts with denatured alcohol
    2- re-install a output gear and shim into the bottom of the diff cup
    3- apply putty into the diff cup, to the top of the output gear
    4- re-install the spider gear set
    5- apply putty into the diff cup, to the top of the spider gears
    6- with an output gear and shim installed into the ring gear, line up the the screw holes and press
    the ring gear into place
    7- re-install the 4 ring rear screws.

    Done...locked diff

    LOL #7- re-install the 4 ring gear screws. Not ring rear screws.

    No biggie and good luck.
