VESC/CANBUS/Y? Motor Mixture

When using CANBUS to connect two VESC for dual motor setup, can I use a combination of one Brushless and one Brushed Motor? Can the Slave VESC control a different type Motor than the Master? Can the Master VESC keep two different Motor types in sync? Would this setup instead be possible with a VESC “Y” connection? If not, is there any way to add to it or tweak it so that it will? Any help is greatly appreciated.

No No No. vesc is a brushless motor controller. Do not connect a brushed motor to it. Bldc stands for brushless dc motor Emphasis on the brushless.
