Dunno, but wouldn't try it. When I worked in a shop we had hoses like that redone with new rubber and fittings if we couldn't get the parts. Much like rouschturbo stated. Personally, I wouldn't want to find out if it wasn't done right on the road. I'm sure it can be done, but others may know how.

Alright fellas just a update. Talked to my buddy's dad who apparently worked on foci for like the last 9 years and specialized in the SVTF. He told me since the rubber hose in the clutch line is the only thing damaged, to just replace that. Apparently the metal fittings on each end of the rubber hose are spring loaded and there is a special tool to take those off then I just go to a hydraulic hose shop and get the rubber hose replaced and cut to size then reattach it. He said once thats reattached, just bleed the clutch and I'll be good. Any how tos in bleeding the clutch? I thought I saw someone say it's pretty simple.

So fellas me and my buddy Jerry rigged it and more or less repaired the rubber clutch hose. We had to cut about 1/2" of bad hose off but with a 1/4" hose fitting connector, two 1/4"-5/8" hose clamps and a real of heat shrink, the SVTF is up and running smoothly. Obviously we had to bleed the clutch for a while since the line has been broke since Sunday afternoon but I drove her around base tonight around 11pm when we finished and checked underneath and had no leaks from the former site of pain. Here's a pic of final product prior to heat shrink.

And here is the damage that happened after the site blew

Thanks for all the help and advice guys. Obvisously I don't feel this is a permanent solution so I will be driving the SVT over to Johnny's Auto which is a local shop in San Marcos that said they would replace the rubber with stainless braid.
