Things that sonic team could've used the boost for:Spoiler
1) blowing away fire. (Sonic could do this in rush adventure but was never proven in 3d)
2) plowing through piles of snow or scrap metal to uncover secret routes.
3) power fans or devices through Coveyor belts.
4) Scale up tall towers. (Like, terminal velocity but in reverse)
5) Create power balls behind sonic that fly forward when you stop.
