Unlike most heavyweight karts, the Boo Pipes is unique for having traits similar to that of a lightweight kart; low top speed and high acceleration. But unlike the lightweight karts, this kart is heavy enough to rival the weight of the Koopa King and Piranha Pipes. These traits make the Boo Pipes a very effective kart to use in GP races. However, it isn't very useful in Time Trials, due to its low top speed.
The Boo Pipes has one of the best acceleration stats in the game, being tied alongside the Rattle Buggy and Koopa Dasher; it's also tied with those two karts in terms of top speed. Lastly, when compared to all the other heavyweight karts, the Boo Pipes loses the least amount of speed whenever it goes off-road.
