 I just would not trust the braided cable.  That means you rely on the carb springs.  I would much rather have the solid so that when you pull and push you have the control both ways.  Also, the solid does not "stretch" or give.  I did use the braided/twisted cable for the choke which is no problem.
 Good Luck!
p.s.  Call you soon

If I remember right my throttle assy cost about  $250 but it is very good quality push pull unit.
When I used to fly my Kolb ultralight it was stick right hand, throttle left hand.  I had no trouble at all getting used to switching hands. I would not at all like 1 throttle on the left side. You could never fly from right seat, which is something I have a lot of fun doing.  It is almost as if I'm flying a totally different plane and I think it makes me a better pilot than I would be if I only flew left seat.
