Default Wilwood MC failure

Took the car to dinner tonight and had to hit the brake pedal hard to stop the car
No issues... Drove a little father to park, steped on the brakes and the pedal went to the floor. MC has fluid, no leaks, pedal is connected to the MC shaft! Any thoughts what happened?

buy a rebuild kit. It's just a o ring and a rubber cup.

Default Resivour is dry...

Just a thought, but have you refilled and bled the system, then had Jane hold her foot on the brake peddle to add pressure to the system so you could actually check for leaks and or a failed seal?

Could it have all leaked on, and burned off the header, and/or collectors?

The fluid is where the brake pad material used to be.

The reservoir must be too small.
