"Aircraft aluminum" is 100% pure marketing crap.

Both are some Chinese variety of 60 series aluminum just like everything else. I guarantee the Slingshot fuselage costs less than half of ...

I don't think you buy those looking for speed, but just guess I'd say the 76 will be faster based on foil profile.
