Help with nginx vbseo-vbulletin rewrites?

I'm having trouble with some quirky vbulletin vbseo url's. Here's what I have in my nginx server config file:

location / {
rewrite ^/forum/f[0-9]+/.+-([0-9]+)/$ /threads/$1/ redirect;
rewrite ^/forum/f([0-9]+)/$ /forums/$1/ redirect;
...


This works great for old url's like
Code:
https://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/official-show-your-basses-thread-part-16-a-851761/
and
Code:
https://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/
But here's where I need help. Apparently my old posts are full of URL's that have a .html at the end, like:
Code:
https://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/official-show-your-basses-thread-part-16-a-851761/index5.html
How can I edit the rewrite rule such that it just plain ignores the "index5.html"?

Also, is there a way to change the rewrite rule so that it doesn't *require* a trailing slash? Old url's without a trailing slash are not rewritten correctly.

Thanks!
