The only difference is the Crossfire/Sli features?

As far as I have ever been able to tell, yes. I think the UD3R has one extra PCIe slot (or maybe it's a PCI slot?) to make up for the missing PCIex16.

The only difference between UD3P and UD3R is the extra PCI-E x16 slot, 2x RAID vs 1 RAID config for the UD3P, and Dual LAN slots, for those who actually need it.

No. I love mine, but... they are supposedly not the best for taking the 45nm quad core CPUs as far, so I can't recommend this board for his use. They're Golden for the dual cores though.

If you're looking at the Formula series, the Rampage Formula is a better bet. The interesting thing is, it's 99.9% the same board as the Maximus Formula. It's merely got the X48 chipset instead of the X38 chipset, which are themselves about the same thing from what I know (you can even use the Rampage Formula BIOS on the Maximus Formula, as I am), yet the Rampage Formula and X48 is supposedly said to take the 45nm quad core CPUs higher in practice.

Still... even that's not as good as some of the better P45 chipsets are said to be (unless you meant the Maximus II Formula, which is a P45 chipset, and not the original Maximus Formula?).

You have a Maximus II Formula. That's a P45 chipset. The Maximus Formula is X38. They're quite different.

Hmm, despite what I said above/know about how it clocks better, I still wouldn't ever trade my board for one. I love it (so much so, that I have decided to forgo selling it to fund an upgrade so I can keep it as secondary, this platform's been that good for me). It might not get as far as one with a 45nm quad core CPU, but I don't have one, so to me, this board's been Golden. Plus, while it isn't make or break by itself, the board isn't much cosmetically (in my honest opinion).
