Campy/Shimano compatible?Peter

I was wondering whether it is possible to use the new Record 9-speed derailleur with Shimano shifters or vice-versa, since it is lighter than the Dura-ace model.

Peter, this gets covered here a LOT, so you might want to go through the archives to get more info. The spacing of Shimano and Campy cassettes is different. The movement of the derailleur with respect to cable movement will also be off. You won't get good results. Don't let weight weenie-ism get in the way of having components that work.
