I'd be surprised if the real-life trim wheel resistance varies significantly between the Max and the NG in any configuration, given the similar aerodynamics.
My concern would be that at 250kts, they could not manually trim the ac. (in the sim)

On the NG, you had 2 switches that operated elec trim and AP trim. On the MAX, the 2 switches are redundant, and either shuts stab trim completely off, going to manual wheel input only.
So far, it looks like MCAS has only initiated on AoA faults, so assume MCAS does initialize, you shut down the stab trim, and now have to rely on manual trim with faulty AoA measurements?
