Mario Kart series

Mario Kart DS

The Poltergust 4000 debuted in Mario Kart DS, as one of Luigi's karts. His others include the Standard LG and Streamliner. It offers decent Speed, Acceleration and Handling, as well as good Off-Road and Mini-Turbo (which two of those stats are hidden to the player), but it is fairly Light and has low Drift and gets poor Items. All it's stats except drift are slightly better than Mario's Shooting Star making it more preferable.

Its speed is shared with Waluigi's Gold Mantis and its weight is equivalent to Toad's Standard TD, and Dry Bones' Banisher. It shares its low items stat will all other characters' lighter karts.

During gameplay, only Luigi can use the Poltergust 4000. However, if the player completes all 150cc Nitro or Retro Grand Prix cups, Yoshi and Waluigi can use this kart. To let all other racers use this kart, the player must complete all cups in the Mirror Class.
