I'd expect the replacement remote to be identical in shape and function, but possibly with slightly higher quality to that last bit. Mine has a tendency to misintepret the input if I'm making small adjustments to speed, which I'm also hearing from other owners. I'm guessing LEGO is also looking at that and wanting to improve that bit while they still have a chance to do so.
I've experienced the same issue, I don't know if it's a question of delay or wrong signal or anything else. I don't know if they will fix that issue as I wonder if it is due to the RC or the receiver; I may exchange my RC depending on that.
I think Lego will keep the same moulds, otherwise our RC will be collectors!

Man, I got mine the first day. Even though I haven't have time to use it that much, I'm still pretty bummed. Oh well, that's what happens when you rush something to the market.
Lego has made RCs for a while (even in various shapes) but electric devices are not their core market, so I can understand that something like that happened.
