I advice to use the bell and shoe only for practice before race day and on race day. It will wear faster then a steel bell and a red shoe but the improved acceleration is defiantly worth it.
Also clean the bell and shoe after everyday of practice

Acer also have a LAB C02 kit available.
But as mentioned by Lars the only main difference are the new smaller front diff bearings.

Do I need to replace the shaft as well even though it still looks & feels good ?
Why did this happen when the one way was lubed with proper grease etc...
I might have degreased the one way while cleaning and forgot to lube.
If the shaft still looks good and still has a proper diameter I think you could use it again. Might clean it up a little with some soft scotch bright to be sure.
If it hasn't been lubed it will overheat and it will get stuck.
I clean mine before every practice day and when I'm running the car a lot or the track is dirty I will clean and relube during the practice day.
Most of the Capricorn one ways are German INA bearings and I think they are best lubed with an oil, I use the Xceed one way oil.
I've been using the same one-way which was in the kit in 2010 for all my practice days until the end of 2011.
I have a completely separate gearbox and one way which I only use on race days.
