Bummer: Couldn't find the `RaceCar` class

My first line of code is class RaceCar:, but I'm getting this error. Any help appreciated!

racecar.py
class RaceCar: 
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        for k, v in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, k, v)

    self.laps = 0

    def run_lap(self, length):
        self.fuel_remainig -= length*0.125
        self.laps += 1

So close! An object “not found” usually means a typo or syntax error.

Looks like a typo in self.fuel_remainig

Edit: also class attributes do not get set using self. Use laps = 0 instead of self.laps = 0

Instance attributes set inside a method are set using self.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
