The aim of investigation was to analyze geometrical effects of frame on vehicle handling. Analysis had been done on prototype of three wheels vehicle. The prototype was designed using revolute joint frame to gain better vehicle handling. Revolute joint frame on the vehicle prototype could be set up into three configurations, below the road plane of irc (instantaneous rotation center), on the road plane or netral number of irc, and above the road plane of irc. Handling performances of three configurations were analyzed by computer simulation using Universal Mechanism 5.0 software and qualitative experiment on U-turn track test.The simulation was set up at the 15 m/s constant velocity, gained the values of the koch index on below road plane, on the road, and above the road of ircare 16.15 Ns2/rad, 6.41 Ns2/rad, and 2.82 Ns2/radrespectively. The lowest koch index number showed the best performance based on U-turn qualitative tests. The results agreed with qualitative experiment, that all of test drivers decided that frame configuration of irc at above the road plane was more suitable on curving track, whereas the irc at the below road plane was more stable on straight track
