Does the distinction between basic and specific crimes only come into play when considering voluntary intoxication? Because with involuntary intoxication, if you still have the mens rea, you don't have a defence.

Yes. The main distinction is that for voluntary intoxication even if you don't have the mens rea you can still be guilty of a crime of basic intent which is satisfied by recklessness.
