Hey, Kevin... I'm trying to develop an "ear" for tuning the high speed jet on my saws, but don't quite have it yet. I've been told to richen it up a bit so it "burbles" at WOT, then cleans up in the cut. I think I'm hearing the burble just before your saw goes into the wood (at 11, 15 and 18-19 seconds in the video). Is that it?

The 357 wasnt set up in the video with a burble that day.  This video shows the rich burble sound with cleaning up in the cut. This video was way rich.  Get a burble and then back off a hair and listen for the saw to clean up in the cut is how I like them.

OK, I think I hear it now. Is this rich enough that it's still burbling a bit in the cut, especially in the earlier cuts? I think I'm hearing it before the cut. I also think I hear it during the first bit of the first cut then it cleans up at about the 25 second mark. There are a couple of "blips" during that first cut at about the 27 or 28 second mark. Is that also a "burble", possibly from having it set too rich? One of my saws does that in the cut sometimes. I'm wondering if that's a sign I should lean it out a touch more.

I like your 357xp! You still have it? Same saw in second video?  See the second one has a D handle.

Same saw.

Nope sold it to a friend after winning  GTG races with it for several years.  Then he sold it to a member and friend here.   

I used the D-ring 460 rescue handles for cold start racing.  I used my woods ported saws to learn with till I got alky/nitro saws to race.

This one cleans up in the cut pretty good, noticeable to ear.
