<p>How should I go about diagnosing the brake system. Pull the pads? Bleed it some more? The pedal now feels mushy all the time.</p><p>Stoptech pads on 1.6 brakes.</p><p>ATE Type 200 fluid.</p>

<p>I also have some sort of rear diff leak. Not sure if it is from the seal between the case and pumpkin, or from the drain/fill plug.</p>

It's the pads. Replace and move on.

Did you use new crush washers?

Getting some used cobalts from a local, I'll pull the pads sometime this week. I don't have another track day before a double header at thunderhill. Maybe I'll try and do the July BMW day to make sure everything is good.

<p>Would an 01 master fit my car with no issue? I might swap the auction one for mine.</p>

<p>Used the vinyl cutter at work today to cut out a template for the new hood vent. It should make placement and cutting about a million times easier.</p><p></p><p><span>humming</span></p>

<p>It does. But I think I'm going to be selling them. I found cobalts for 50 bucks locally, will be running those for the next 3 track days. If that doesn't fix it then I'll either burn the car or throw money at the problem </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>...just kidding, I'll screw it up 5 ways sideways and then find a good solution, I'm pretty used to that by now.</p>

No more power on the stock engine. But I actually might be buying another 4.1 torsen soon....honestly I'm just not going to the strip until I learn how to not wheel hop.
