Hi, smartsabby

You can do it openloop. Cutoff the feedback network. Put squarewave on input (400-500khz), and with dual trace osciloscope, you see the original squarewave from the generator and square wave on top and bottom of the driver's output (at mosfet's gate). You can see how much shift during turnon and turnoff.
