Dual Slalom/ Mountaincross Set-up?

I Figured Out That I Wanted To Try Another Aspect Of The Sport And I Have A Few Questions...
Fork: Marzocchi Dj Or Manitou Minute?
Whats The Differences Between Marz Dj 1,2,3 And Manitou Minute 1,2,3? What Should I Buy?
Groupset: I Can Afford To Buy The Saint... Is It Worth It? Ant Other Recommendations?
Rims: Sun Singletrack; It Is Ok?

Personal preference would be a fox talas, and full sram x.0 setup. Mavic 823s, tubless with michelin dh 16s and 24s.

The marzocchi DJ line is way heavy for that setup, and the singletracks are really heavy too. Saint isnt necessary for what you need either - its just overbuilt and heavy.

Truvativ holzfeller cranks are great, and a Gigapipe Ti BB maybe. Easton CNT bars, and a Thomson stem would be great.

The thing I like about your choices of 'heavy and strong' are the ability to screw up. Most of my friends do bikercross and when you case a jump or crash the damage is intense. If you want to save money in the long run thats a decent setup. It you are looking for light then definately look at something else
