Do all the 2013 RAM trucks have the same 4x4 systems?

I race against Cummins Rams that run in 4WD Hi range. Thats the only way they can hook with street tires. In the eighth mile we're typically running at mid 70's mph, quarter mile, just under 100. As long as you're going in a straight line, 4WD is ok, if you turn, it can actually be dangerous. Sometimes driving in snow, my truck will kick the rear end sideways in 4WD. If you drag race in 4WD, you can possibly stretch the drive chain in the transfer case. I use my truck to skid out heavy logs in 4LO and have had to replace the chain. It's pretty easy to replace. I skid logs with 2-3,000 lbs in the bed and it will pull hard enough to break 15,000 lb dacron tow rope.

And how fast can I go ? in 4 wheel high
(If I were to do that, again not that I would) but to avoid spinning the tires.
Only Manual transfer cases have Four-Wheel drive High, other transfer cases have four-wheel drive Lock and four-wheel drive low, and others (higher end models) have four-wheel drive auto, four-wheel drive Lock and four-wheel drive low.

Four-Wheel Drive High Range - This range locks the
front and rear driveshafts together forcing the front and
rear wheels to rotate at the same speed. Additional
traction for loose, slippery road surfaces only.

If you have four-wheel drive Lock its essentially the same as four-wheel drive high, don't use it on dry pavement.

Any idea how the anti-spin diff. reacts when in 4wd?Would it just be over ridden?

I don't think it will change much or react much different, Anti-spin is sort of like LSD, It has clutches inside the differential gears. If it "senses" a wheel slipping, it tries to push more torque to the opposite wheel. In 4wd Lock mod you will have both front and rear drive shafts locked in sync by the transfer case, so it would continue to work as an anti-spin diff and send power to whatever wheel has traction. In 4wd Auto mod I also think it will not change anything because the transfer case is only supplying power to the front wheels when needed as in loss of traction from the rear wheels, the Anti-spin will just keep trying to provide the wheel with traction with more power and if there is loss of traction then more power will be applied to the front wheels via the transfer case. Hope I explained that coherently.
