Hi and welcome to DT girtz911.

Are you looking to race the 18 wheeler In Scouting Events Like Mid - America or the Westcoast Grand Prix?
( If so just send me a PM and I'll be happy to hook you up with plans from all the pinewood derby 18 wheeler kits to make your own.)

For axles for making your own 18 wheeler and using BSA wheels.
https://www.maximum-velocity.com/produc ... -standard/
or if wheels and axles are needed for event's out side of Scouting.
https://www.maximum-velocity.com/produc ... std-axles/

The BSA Scouting Big Rig 18 wheeler Kit's.. here in the states are very hard to find and to come by now or days.

If you don't mind making purchases out side the states..
the Scout Express 18 wheeler kits from Canada can be used with a wheel change to USA BSA wheels for scouting events.

If you are just looking for a Pinewood derby 18 wheeler kit.. To race out side of Scouting events .
Indy products has a 18 wheeler kit.

Here are the plans out of a BSA kit dated 1996 if anyone wants a copy... I happened to find a kit at a resale store a while back...

Mega claims to have no expiration date so they should be available for a long time...

I did notice that Indy Products still offers a big rig kit. It has the full width axles, though.

I happen to have this official 18 wheeler kit, unused complete in origi9nal box. Seems no one has any for sale anywhere, but I am willing to sell the one I have. Seems as it's unfindable, I assume it's valuable to collectors.
