I agree, a good place to start is with rolling resistance.

Its the first thing to check.

Since ur mate has one can u compare them to each other?
place them on a nice level hard surface, then push them by hand. Does ur car feel harder to push?

One good idea to that's a easy one, Double check the wheel nuts.... back the wheel nuts off a turn so the wheel just wobbles.... spin the wheel by hand and get a feel for how much force u need to turn it. now tighten up the nut..... check to see if it feels the same as it did before when u spun the wheel. do this for each wheel.... while u are doing that, it might be a good idea check for hair wrapped around the axles and shafts by taking the wheels all the way off
