Solid has good stability, and very nice grip when cornering. It is my favorite for C1 and E2 karts for these reasons. Especially considering how many people are bumping at the start right now, solid really helps to withstand those bumps.
Then it would act like cotton? Cotton has best handling/stability?

K, I'll explain what I've assumed and what I've heard (btw Okiesmokie, correct me if I'm wrong on these). Also, these differences are less noticeable (or perhaps not noticeable at all) on the C1 karts. C1 karts hardly matter at all.

Marathon - worst kart; bad handling.
Solid - best durability (good at taking hits; you don't get flipped as easily, etc.); decent handling
Burst - fastest speed without N2O; bad handling.
Saber - best acceleration with N2O. bad handling, decent while drifting
Cotton - best handling

Cotton actually has the worst stability, because it's such a light kart. The difference between cotton and solid is that cotton has better handling, meaning able to adjust the steering faster than other karts, and solid is more of a slower steerer, but it maintains grip as it corners. It's hard to explain, you have to drive both karts to know what I mean, I think.

The thing about Marathon isn't that it completely sucks, it's that it is 'alright' in every field, but not the best at anything.

And although Saber seems like it has faster acceleration, it doesn't really. What gives it it's speed is the extremely low amount of drag it produces when drifting (which also causes it to gain N2Os faster, because you're moving faster while drifting)

A lot of people also don't know that Cotton has the highest max speed of the karts (not in C1, though), but it's drag when drifting is a lot slower compared to Saber.

How does the Cotton handle under boost? I'm using a Burst right now, and I can't boost round the big fast corner (narrow track) on Zig Zag because it won't steer sharply enough while boosting.

Or does it even make a difference? I only chose Burst cause it looks nice :P No point wasting Licca if it doesn't matter.

I don't think any karts really handle that well when boosting, generally it's wiser to drift to steer while boosting than to try to force your kart to steer normally.

Edit: If you just tap shift and the direction you want to go, your kart will turn that direction without losing much speed to the drift

I'm using the Burst right now. Would it be advisable for me to buy one of these new karts, or is sticking with the Bust fine?

C1's don't really matter. Stick with whatever feels the best for you, or whatever you think looks best.

Cotton has best handling.

Doesn't mean it's the best at drifting.

Does anyone use link drift? In the youtube thing it shows them only getting 1 boost, and i've tried it doing the exact same way they do it, I get barely any more bar of boost and it slows me down alot. I'm alot faster just using basic..

Link boost and double boost are used when you have a specific way to play a map. Maybe a link boost/double boost w/ one regular drift would get you an n2o, while 3 regular drifts would get you an n2o. 2 drifts are faster than one, even if one of the two is slightly slower than a regular one.

I honestly don't think thats the case, people who double drift etc thrash me in freeway (get times like 2:23) while I've tried and tried and I've only been able to crack 2:30 by 0.5 seconds using normal drift...

Yeah I just re-read your post at my post and I don't know why I said what I said lol. I think I ment to say that double drifting slows me down in comparason to just normal drifting.

I always see people drift out on that open strech on freeway, why do they do that? I always over take them there lol, but they usually win in the end >=[
