Controller Thumbstick Grease?

Recommended Posts

is there some sort of grease (lithium grease?) inside the stick where the mechanism is? one or 2 of my controllers feel... sluggish? like if you move the stick all the way to the left, and then just let go it doesnt feel as quick to center as another controller. i cleaned out the thumbstick with alcohol and q tips but idk if theres some sort of grease that should be there. like the dvd drive laser rails.

whenever i clean controllers out, i add a small amount of synthetic grease to the inside of the joystick modules using a toothpick.  i recommend Super Lube 21010, but any high-quality silicone-based grease should work.

      Will a 360 usb controller work on a OG Xbox? I see that the OG Xbox has a 5th wire labeled timing signals.
