Thanks for the follow up. I was referring to the gap mentioned in this post
The original poster was talking about the "heel piece base plate". I haven't got there yet, but when taking another look, I see what he talked about. The heel piece base baseplate is thick and clearly arched upward, so it's almost impossible to clamp it tight against the riser plate just by the screws alone. He used some kind of clamps there.
I'm still trying the the "toe piece base plate". It's a thin long piece of plastic with 4 metal screws in the middle. In the picture, the front screws are about 1.5 - 2 inches from where you see light coming through. The screws are already tightened all the way, no space or gap there. I'm pretty sure it's already pass the 4.5nm torque mentioned in the manual.
At the front where you see light coming through, you can slide in a piece of paper, about 1/10th to 1/5th mm. Is that an acceptable tolerance? Because unless the plastic is arched up, further tighten the screws in the middle have little effect on the front. It could also possible that the toe piece base plate is straight or even curved upward, in which case, it's not possible to make a perfect contact.
What do you think? Am I worried too much by calling it a "gap" (1/10 mm)?

The GAP I believe that was mentioned is a .5mm gap between the bottom of the toe of the boot sole and the Anti friction plate.
there is a particular procedure to set this gap. But if you are using Neoxs bindings the toe height is automatically adjusted. There is no manual adjsutment necessary.
Looks like your screws are not screwed into the plate all the way.
