If you look at the base of the binding, the part that goes under the toe can be moved in and out via a sliding mechanism underneath the padding (looking at the part of the base that contacts the snowboard). Adjust it so that the padding is in full contact with your boot toe when strapped in. If it is moved out too far, you will have less toe contact and less responsive toe side turns.

Does anyone have a link with a more detailed manual about the Cartels?

I have some 2012 Cartels and the book that comes with it is pretty vague

How to Adjust Burton Bindings | eHow.com

there is a plastic clip in the front of the gas pedal. you have to pop it out with a flathead screwdriver, then underneath squeeze the plastic part and slide. now don't forget to put the plastic clip back.
the customs don't have adjustable pedals, thiers only snaps into place underneath. it only can be in one position. that's one of the upgrades of the mission and cartel.
