The main reason for your ackerman is the wheel wobble on the inner wheel. From what i can see from the dark video is that when your outer wheel already reached full lock, your inner wheel can still steer a bit further. That is called wheel wobble. Then to get rid of the last bit of ackerman, you can try shorten or lenghten the M3 rod between the steering cranks.

I use a turn buckle with a pair of ball ends to make that center rod adjustible and then sit on full lock and adjust till it's mostly gone

I find my chassis a little unstable with it fully gone

But the Ackerman I do have is very minor and wouldn't worry about it anyways
