Welcome to the forum Peter. You need to slow the router down to about 1/2 of full speed to run the large raised panel bits. You can adjust the speed of yours by plugging it into an aftermarket speed control. Rockler and MCLS both sell them as well as others. You'll still have an undersized router though. One member at least recommends using vertical raised panel bits where you put a tall fence on your table and run the panel through vertically instead of horizontally. The vertical RP bits take less power. I personally still am a little intimidated when I hear those large diameter bits spin up to speed.
