Sounds like a bad booster or master cylinder. You can check Summit racing for entire rebuild kits.

Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. It should be about 1/4 inch below the top in each chamber. If it's low, refill it and, with the engine off, bleed the system. Any leaks should become apparent during the bleeding process. Start at the right rear wheel, then left rear, then right front, and finally the left front. Check the fluid in the master cylinder often during the bleeding process. HTH. -Jim
