Challenge 2 of 3 Master Class, Python

Hello. Whenever I try to check my code I receive a "Bummer: Try again" error. How can I fix this?

class RaceCar:
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining
        self.laps = 0
        for key,value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, key, value)

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

I have solved the issue. Fuel_remaining and length need to be changed to self.fuel_remaining and self.length in the run_lap method.

I had the same issue - https://teamtreehouse.com/community/object-oriented-python-cannot-pass-challenge-class-racecar

I signed out, back in again and restarted the challenge and it accepted.

Happened on another challenge also, and the same solution worked. I guess the challenge checker gets out of wack sometimes.
