Tips for the billy hatcher level?
I'm trying to complete both the mirrored and normal versions on A class, but some of those turns seem impossible, videos, tips, what characters are better for that track, anything

Here's a guide for all the Time Trials. There's video and explanation for all the tracks.

Now, a general tip:
When taking really tight turns, ease off the accelerator. You'll slow down a bit but be able to take the turn much tighter without hitting the walls. (Hitting the walls is bad, as you know =P)

The last curve in Chilly Castle is one of the hardest curves in the game.
When taking it
1) Do not perform a stunt
2) Let go of the gas just as you're about to pass the transformation ring
3) Aim into the right
4) Quickly start drifting to the left and hit the gas.
5) Change drifting direction again and boost into the item boxes

The rest is practice and experimenting with varying degrees of "off the gas".

Hope this gets you on your way.

If you find the turns hard then you could always try picking some characters with more handling.

That corner alone made Chilly Castle one of the two time trial ghosts that gave me a considerable issue, to the point that when I beat the ghost, I had been running laps on the course for an hour straight (which I then repeated by making a demonstration video, which took forty minutes getting it right). I plan on redoing the demonstration video after the current beta patch goes live, but check the Chilly Castle section of my time attack guide for a demonstration (trying to post it here is causing an error, probably because it's an unlisted video)

The best you can do is take PrimeSonic's advice though, this is one of, if not the only, those corners where you can't just speed through it. There's a few corners that help to go slower (a few of those hairpins from Burning Depths comes to mind) but if you don't slow up for this one you -will- crash. Practice the corner in time attack until you can get a good pace down for it. Then put it to application in an actual race.

Against AGES? You can once again consult my guide over it; the Expert Time Trial ghost is actually faster that the Expert AGES ghost. It is a pretty tricky course though, the best thing I can tell you is that you really need to ease up on the gas during the large circular corner toward the end; too fast and you'll hit the outside wall.
