Haha, I’ve heard that before… then it pulls you in. Welcome to Karting, we’re happy you’re here.
I’m originally from Ireland so you can imagine I love rallying. For sure rally is more intimidating in some ways.
For sure karts an cars behave a lot differently. I think of a kart as an intense, accelerated learning program. The principles and high level concepts are identical.
My 2c would be to not get too caught up in the specific traits of how one handles vs the other and just think of it as an excercise in identifying what any given racing vehicle needs from you. You can use the kart to improve your thought processing speed, looking ahead and other high level concepts that apply to all vehicles.
If you haven’t had a chance to dig yet, there’s some great driving (mental) technique discussions on here, again high level concepts that apply to all racing/performance driving; #data-acquisition
