    Welcome to the forum. Pretty specific problem, and I haven't seen a lot of people on the forum with WPL's. Perhaps you'll get lucky. One piece of advice, one thread is all you need. You won't reach any more people by starting two.

    Wpls are more challenging since they left most of the quality at the factory. And there are hundreds of people selling 'the same' upgrades that are all completely different but seem to all use the same pics to advertise their stuff.

    Do you have the motor steering with the clutch that keeps the motor screaming when turning?
    Do you have a servo for steering?

    What type of radio are you running?

    I've seen people use the Resistor as an option to either put on LEDs to drop voltage, or put inline with a motor lead to slightly help with motor torque
