Default Brake pressure loss

So i was out at bundy hill this weekend and i started losing my brake pressure intermittently. I stopped to check it out, but there were no leaks and i believe i checked for any vacuum issues. Any ideas? is it my master cyl???

sounds like it. Fluid level wasn't super low and you were way off camber were you?

if you have rear drums make sure the cylinders arent leaking. Thats where my last truck leaked and it was hard to see.

if the fluid was full, I'd suspect the master cylinder.
