Motor Configurations for HDC2460

Help would be incredible!

I have a mobile platform, using two motors operating a wheel on each side.
Command is sent by an analog joystick. Movement required is forward, reverse and steering.

The Controller installed is an HDC2460 dual channel.
The motors are: Permanent Magnet motor, 1 HP, 3000 RPM, 24VDC, 37 Amps.
My Electric system supply are four(4) 6Volt batteries in series = 24volts

So far, using Roborun + PC Utility, I'd been able to make each motor spin both ways, one at a time in Mixing Seperate and Open Loop mode. But never full speed because the Amps would go to high and end up stopping my motor. I don'T know if my configurations are quite right since I find it difficult understanding how to set certain values.

Also, since yesterday I've been trying to test them while monitoring(with Roborun + connected via USB) with different configurations and now as soon as I try to send a command the controller loses the connection with my PC.

If someone could help me figure out what I'm doing wrong or have any advice I would appreciate it.

It is likely that the initial startup of your motors is causing a brief drop in voltage that is making the controller lose connection. Please try connecting an auxiliary power source or battery to PwrCtrl (thin yellow and black wires). This powers the logic of the controller independent of what is happening on the VMOT bus, so even if the motor startup causes a voltage dip the controller will stay on and active.

The PwrCtrl wires are already supplied by a battery.
