Septic floor drain trap question


I have to remove the current set up to allow me insulate the wall. What Iam attempting to do is have a straight run of 3 inch PVC pipe straight into the trap. Once I remove the old PVC should I replace the trap with the same PVC fitting. I've seen at the plumbing supply that there is a 3 to 4 inch rubber seal that gets put into trap and the 3 inch pvc pipe slip into it. Not sure what the correct set up is?

Thanks joe , this is the rubber seal I was talking about. Is it safe the say the current set is wrong? Also is there Sealant that needs to be applied. Thanks

To add to this- you should have clean out at the base of the stack too- use a wye or a clean out tee.
