No. I have beat people with much better deadlifts than me on car deadlifts (side handle) a lot. it really is a different lift.
You should use very little low back, the first part of the pull to break it off the ground is a lot of quads than just all hips push them forward squeeze with the glutes.
I find for me it is more of a box squat where you really sit back into it. chest up, pop the hips forward
