HOW TO CHECK FOR ACKERMANN (page # 4): There are a few ways to check for excess Ackermann in our race cars. The best way is to use a laser alignment system to measure how much each front wheel turns and compare the two. The laser system can also be used for rear end alignment, right side tire alignment, and bumpsteer.

Quote from page 3: "By using a precise laser alignment system, such as this one from True Laser Track, we can measure the amount of steering in each front wheel to determine if we have either Ackermann or Reverse Ackermann. The movement in inches of the laser dot on the target is translated into exact toe gain or loss. No method is more accurate than this."
