If I use too much power i dont have enough energy to transmit data.

Ok so here's what I am doing.

I am currently working on a remote control car. The car has 2 motors. One forward which is made to steer the wheels, and one backwards which is meant to accelerate the car forward.

The motors receive the data through a radio receiver. I transmit the data through a transceiver. (433RF is the name of the radio transmitter/receiver)

The problem I have is that when I use both motors (for example to steer left and go forward) the radio receiver blocks and keeps sending the same data. How can I fix this?

I have tried until now to lower the power at which the motors go down to their bare minimum but it still doesnt work. The car is also powered by a 9v battery. The remote is powered by a PC (connected by USB). Do you think that I may need to also power the remote with a 9v battery?
