So my super record cranks have started to develop a bad creak,
I have tried grease, Carbon paste and even had the shop locktite them but after 20 k's it started again.

The next step is use specialized glue and glue the cups in then glue the campy cups in to them.

If this fails im considering the s works cranks or some hollowgram's.

Is there any weight saving from campy 53/39 2011 super record to the specialized ones?

Has any one here glued there cups in as specialized have started recomending now?

Do you have BB30? See if this doesn't answer your question...

Yes- Specialized cranks will be lighter.
You want to use yellow loctite to secure the delrin bb cups into the frame. I believe the specific loctite is 641.

There's a several threads at RBR http://forums.roadbikereview.com/specialized/c-bear-osbb-campy-adapter-install-281423.html on this issue with Campy,
The C Bear adapter seems to be the best solution for campy
