"i was wonder what this pivoting piece on the floor of the front toe piece is? anyone know?"
Its called "Axitec" on rossignol bindings. Its a raised portion of plastic that slides laterally to help let your boot out of the binding. The Axium, Axial, and Scratch bindings have these, while the FKS has an AFD pad- which id teflon, and is stationary.
With my most sincere regards,
