Lots of good vids out there to help.

Welcome to the forums Valen,

Don't get to frustrated with her, not sure how long you have been flying sims for? This here is as real as it gets on PC, so it will take some practice and then some more practice just like IRL.

To engage either of the individual wheel brakes for turning on the ground, the rudder pedal is first depressed in the direction of the desired turn and then the brake lever is pulled until the brake engages.

You need to practice this braking behavior as the spit has a different way of braking compared to other aircraft. You will need to use the braking while taxing, the start of the takeoff run and when the speed becomes slow enough when landing, when the rudder has no effect. Read the Essay's at the top of the thread, very good read.
