Campy Record 11 chain compatible with 3 year old Record 10 shifters,chain rings and cassettes? Performance issues when using this combination? Anyone tried this combination?:D;)

Not since it is .4mm thinner and more expensive to boot. Will shift poorly in the rear. Modern index systems require a proper width chain, not just a narrower chain, to work well.

You can, but you shouldn't because of the extra cost of the 11-speed chain.

The REAR will shift properly unless you haven't set the index properly OR you aren't using a 10-speed Campagnolo (or, equivalent) rear derailleur.

The FRONT may-or-may-not require an extra "click" to move the chain between chainrings. You will want to tweak the stops if you use a different width chain than the one that is currently on the bike (i.e., that presumes the front derailleur is properly adjusted, now).
