Need a little help here, I can not figure out how to slow & stop when landing the max8. I've tried everything but I touch down but cannot slow and stop before running off end of runway. Otherwise this is a great addition to my sim but... Suggestions please, thanks

I had the same problem until I realised, the auto throttle on was on.

Basically you need to switch the auto throttle off before landing otherwise, despite the auto pilot being disengaged the auto throttle will keep the aircraft at the speed indicated on the speed gage. This means the thrust levers won’t decelerate.

Also have the auto brake at 2 or 3 or max for short runways then you pull back to reverse thrust, the plane will slow right down

That is something I had not considered, I think you have hit on the answer... I will try again on next flight, thank you.
