The MansouriSexl theory is a wellknown test theory of relativity. In one of their three papers [R. Mansouri and S.U. Sexl, Gen. Rel. Grav. 8, 809 (1977)], Mansouri and Sexl deal with the transverse Doppler effect under a set of restrictive conditions. In the following paper we deal with the same effect under the most general conditions and will argue for a novel way of detecting highorder effects in v/c via an increasedspeed reenactment of the IvesStilwell experiment. We will demonstrate the presence of a highorder error term and we will set the experimental conditions for detecting this term.
