Question K2 Highback/Heelcup?

On many models of K2 bindings (auto, formula etc...) it seems like a greater area of the highback is in contact with the heelcup compared with other bindings where only the small (inch or so wide) forward lean adjustment piece is in contact with the heelcup (when using forward lean). Logic tells me this would allow for better energy transfer from the highback into the heelcup/rest of the binding, but maybe I don't have a clue what I'm talking about Just an observation I've been curious about. Can anyone speak to this?

I'm not sure how much of a difference it makes but I love my formulas. i don't know why they don't get more love around here.

There's a reason I've been riding K2 bindings for the last 5 years.

Looks like it could make a difference, but how do you adjust forward lean with those?

The little tooless tabs/screws right above the ankle strap screws.

This video almost, kind of explains it (0:42). I believe it is the '09/'10 model.
