If the car wont free roll with wheels on ground but does when in the air it's often a pulley mismatch front to rear.
The other is check your clutch, if it's bound then the one way will allow slip but engages in a forward direction and resists against the clutch.
Also remove the side belt and check whether its a rear or front issue.
