Your friends car is a piece of crap but the problem is probably something along the lines of either a broken motor mount under the hood or a transmission problem. To check this all that you have to do is get in the car and pop open the hood. Next, turn on the car and one of you needs to sit in it while the other is in front of the car watching the engine. Tell your friend to put it in gear while holding the brake and step on the gas. If the engine block tries to move while the car doesn't, then you have a broken motor mount. If not, then there is something else wrong and I would suggest buying a new car and making it a Toyota or a Honda.
