bt a brake line, got a ?

so im test drivin the bus the other day and it feels great. but wheni get back home i thought i might see if i could get the rear wheels to light up so im light-medium on the brakes and i give it throttle...

blows a pinhole in the small line from driverside front wheel flex hose to a distribution block 2 ft away on the frame.

pedal drops to floor. literally no pedal at all, no brakes at all...

so my question is about the brake fluid distribution. does this chassis have a fail safe like most vehicles? i know my 97 escort will seperate the system in case a line blows. drivers front and pass rear are on one half and the pass front and drivers rear are on the other.
