Default hyper 7 brake linkage problem

i can not get the brake to apply on my hyper 7. I ran it for a couple of weeks, it did perfect, but now for some reason its changed. I cant even get a hint of brake, and im getting frustrated with it. i need some help. its the stock brake linkage, and it stopped working after a cold night of racin. Its not the servo as i already changed it.

are you running the stock breaks? check if the brake pads are still there. next you can try removing the linkages from the servo first and test the brakes manually. if everything works it could be your adjustments on the linkages, try moving the collars. Another thing to check is the distance between the calipers and the brake disc, you can tighten that a little just make sure that there is still clearance so as to avoid binding.
