Goal Race Time
You should aim to get a race time between 14"5 and 14"9. Note: these goal times are applicable only if you talk to Koopa between misc. timer times 6.1x and 6.3x from the pipe. This is the average time range for this section assuming that you do the normal triple jump dive -> longjump movement out of the pipe.
Mountain Clip Route
This route guarantees that no balls will get in Koopa's way during the race, so it might give you faster times on average. This is explained in more detail in the above video.
