Bracket was all this site was about for a long time until we moved into street racing on FM5. It would be good to see it make a come back if anyone is willing to run it.

I agree it would be interesting because if all cars are just as fast it's up to the driver to put it down the track

That would be bad arse buddy. Nostalgia super stock on FM4 was my all time favourite class.

Here is some info i have saved -

.

This bracket features cars from the days of the past when factory experimental (family cars with dual carbs, long wheel bases and high HP big blocks stuffed under the hood) cars were dominating local drag strips.

.

The cars are tuned to hit their realistic "top stock" numbers. We send you the tune, you can tweak the tune to squeeze out every extra fraction of a second, but you may not change a single part, except the wheels and hood scoops.

.

There are 9 cars from the big five to chose from, and all we ask is you sign up for the race, and run a realistic looking paint.

Either storefront, replica, or realistic paint. Search Nostalgia Superstock on any image search for ideas.

.

Rules –

- You must run one of the 9 cars below and obtain the tune from myself (PACMAN).

(you can tune it but not change any parts except the wheels and hood scoops. Wheels must be Drag style wheels.)

- The bracket will be set to 11.750 on the Benchmark qtr mile.

(All tunes are built and tuned to run the bracket time.)

- Races will be run in the usual 8 wide format. 2 rounds with points being awarded as each racer is eliminated

- TCS will be forced off.

The nostalgia super stock was fun to run on fm4 and a big hit. would more than likely be killer to run it on fm5.
