The following thumbsticks can be found here:

This is a mod that my homeboy derty (http://ouyaforum.com/member.php?4134-derty) wanted me to show you guys. I'm posting this on his behalf.

*Please note that he is using the Xbox 360 sticks. He's not sure if the PS3 sticks work or not.

First pic.

This is when his thumbsticks first arrived in his mail.

In the process of changing thumbsticks. There's already one in place.

Both of them are on. Looks pretty sick!

I personally like these along with the Ice Blue and Blood Red ones. Now I really want to change mine...

Thanx bro for posting this ;)

And after changing the sticks out it is an obvious upgrade in grip, rotation feel and style.
No more finger slips or grinding sound when rotating in a 360 degree motion.
It also feels as if u hav excellent control now.
All around great buy for only cents for a pair :D

O and I would also like to add that installation is a breeze.
Just pop them off and then put the new ones on :D
No screwdriver required.

Modsticks pro would be what I would use, they have versions for 360 and PS3 http://modsticks.com/categories/XBOX-360/Modsticks-PRO/ . They also have a travel limiter (which goes over the stem of the thumbstick), being that the stem on the modsticks pro are a lot skinnier then the stock thumbsticks. They also serve as a Bering of sorts spinning around the thumbstick stem so there is less friction http://modsticks.com/travel-limiters-for-modsticks-pro-9mm/,

Yes they are a bit expensive but they are probably the best thumbstick replacement available, they have assorted colors, and can choose between convex and concave tops as well. Their height is adjustable.

I have a set for my PS3 controller and absolutely love them,

http://modsticks.com/products/Toxic-Green-%252d-Modsticks-Pro-XBOX-360.html Would this fit the standard OUYA controller?

If the 360 replacements from the OP fit the ouya then chances are high that the 360 modsticks might as well, the only thing about the modsticks is that the fitment is really tight, so it takes a lot of force to install. The only thing that might not fit (without a lot of Modding) is the D pad.

Finally got my sticks and changed them out, way better than the stock sticks.

got them from here (http://bit.ly/1fiPgUx), I contacted them and they said they would mix colors for an order.

What do u mean?
They're Xbox 360 thumbsticks and they give a much better grip that's for sure ;)

And thanx meltdown for posting my pics :D
What's great about plastidip is that u can literally just peel it off if u don't like the color anymore.
It's not permanent in any way :D

I'm a bit of a perfectionist so waiting for some warmer weather so I can air dry it outside. I smell paint and fumes all day as it is.
No need to die faster.

Too bad there isn't a broken controller market like PS and XBox.

Thanks for posting this. My only real gripe with the Ouya controller are the thumbsticks. I bought a set off Amazon and will give this a try.

Bought some red shiny metal thumbsticks. hopefully the aluminum won't be a grindhard compared to the plastic :)

I also bought a few thumbsticks the other day. I actually like the original thumbsticks a lot - I just want colors. So I got a couple of clear green and solid orange/red ones.

I just wish there was face buttons to go along with the change.

Please post pics and details on the feel :)

Will be posting pics once I do. I am sure they would feel fine, as they will be just like the cases (aluminum). I love the original thumbsticks as well, but every time I see grindmarks, I die a little inside because I get epically sad that my thumbsticks won't last and then.. well yeah.. doesn't get better ;)

Also .. I totally misread your last line and got royally confused because of it :)

orange is my next choice, I think that color would look pretty sweet with the controller.

I got my mod sticks in from Amazon (I ordered from the link on page 1) and finding they are not fitting well. I am getting scraping once I put the OUYA covers back on and the sticks don't return to neurtrel. It is generating some dust so maybe it will get better if I move it around for awhile but I didn't see anyone with this problem. The left is worse than the right.

It seems like its really borderline, if it could go down just a fraction of a millimeter I think it would be fine.

Ya man I get a ton of scraping. But my original ouya sticks got a ton of scraping as well so it's expected.
Just thank god they're cheap so once they wear down I'll just get more ;)

Interesting idea!
-ordered a set of 10 from eBay in black.
Very inexpensive and I can mod all of my controllers now.

I'll be doing my original controllers when they get back, but here is my black controller modded up:
