I am a junior so the lightest cassette I could get would be around 160g. Is campy chorus much better than ultegra ten? What are the diffrences between record and chorus? Am I looking at 100, 200g? Would you upgrade from the am classic post to the use carbon one for 85 clams? Should I invest somewhere else?

I personally think Chorus is fine, as good as Record really except for a few bolts, logos and lots of $$$.
Better than Ultegra??? is a never-ending debate....They're different, not necessarily better. I don't know the total comparative weight savings: you can look on the Listings here or on the respective websites for the specific components you would use.

On the AC (you mean aluminum I assume?) versus Alien carbon you can expect to save 40/50g, not bad for $85, if you can stand the USE clamp. I think it's a PITA.

As others have pointed out, your money on a crit bike is better spent on durability/response/power than on non-rotating weight, like on a seatpost. I would spent the money on the best fork you can get that works well with your frame, and then on wheels (but the AC's you have in your budget should be fine).

Will I be able to pull this off? I need to find a place that can give me all my parts or find a huge deal on a gruppo. If I start with a gruppo, I won't shell out for ac350s, I will get the lightest oddsandendos or (if I can convince myself) some nimble flys. What is an alternative to Stronglight cranks? Who could give me a deal on this ensemble? Campy is not that expensive after all.
