Somewhat.  My car is a sort of mini-Quattro.  

One of the motoring programmes in the UK did a comparison of a standard
car on winter tyres vs a 4wd version on standard tyres; the standard car
on winter tyres outbraked it on snow by about 30%.

For "I know" seems to describe a state of affairs which guarantees
what is known, guarantees it as a fact. One always forgets the expression
"I thought I knew".                 Wittgenstein - "On Certainty"
