You can wash it with a power washer but dry it well with an air compressor and spray WD-40 into the bearings so they don't rust from trapped water. Your diff oils are just fine for what you are using the car for.

I would just get a couple cans of nitro clean and go from there. Way too much risk of damage from water in trapped spaces from a high pressure blast. When doing a thorough cleaning (like end of the season) it's easy enough to pull the motor, fuel tank and receiver box then go to town cleaning it up. Clean the engine separately then put it on the shelf for the winter.

First that diff oil setup will work just fine as a baseline setup. Second, use brake cleaner or nitro cleaner to remove any oil from the chassis instead of pressure washing. Compressed air is also great for cleaning.
