Burton Cartels require aggressive boots too?

I have had Burton Moto boots and Custom bindings for the past few years. I got a deal on some Cartels this year so I picked them up to replace the Customs. When I got home and tried them out, I noticed the Moto boots don't fit perfectly in the Cartels. The angle on the back is much more aggressive than the Customs (I was aware of this through reviews I read before purchasing), so in order to get my heel flat on the board I have to leave a significant gap between the back of the bindings and the heel of the boot. This is with the angle adjustment all the slack on the bindings.

Is this a common issue? Do I need to to pick up some new boots to match the Cartels? I'm just wondering if all boots will have the same issue, or if mine are just not aggressive enough. Any recommendations for boots (or a solution)?

1. Put your boots on.
2. Put them in the bindings.

The motos are soft and will pretty much fit wherever you try to fit them. Having said that, do you think they'll be a bit soft for your cartels?

Either that or pound the boots in like a man and tighten up the straps.
