Problems getting Cruise control to run properly with the new wand - dual VESC6

Hi everyone - i hope someone has some input on what to do here,

I seem to have some issues running cruise control w/ dual-VESC 6 and the new Wand!

After updating firmware on both VESC, running the entire motor set-up, and pairing with the Wand - it’s seems like only the master VESC, is able to run with the new cruise control setting on the wand, whereas the slave-VESC just kinda keeps accelerating up to Max RPM (slower or faster depending on the CC-speed setting)! The master keeps CC speed on the motor just fine, and adds additional torque if the load on the wheel is increased - the slave vesc-motor just slowly stops the more load added to the wheel while running in CC mode - and it's only a load applied with the hand so far.

It’s as if the Slave-Vesc doesn’t recognizes input sent over the CAN from the Master Vesc! I’ve tried to reconfigure and reinstall firmware on both VESC now for the past 5 hours, but nothing I’ve done has made it work.

Do you have any ideas of what could be happening? Cheers!
