Default Campy Record OR

Is it by any chance possible to use Campy Record OR cranks on a Wicked with a pressed in BB? Or would one need to somehow mount a campy spindle? As I recall, the square taper of Campy differs from all the others......

The taper differs, but I have never sweated it. When you use the Campy cranks on a non-Campy taper bb, it will "open" the taper up but this shouldn't cause you problems so long as you stay with Shimano tapers. My friend has had Record OR cranks on his Mavic (shimano taper) BB for more than 12 year with no problems.
