Challenge question 2 of 3

I have tried various way to solve this. It keep saying "try again"... What did I do wrong here?

Thank you

class RaceCar:
    self.laps = 0
    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)
    def run_lap(self, length):
        self.length = self.fuel_remaining - length * 0.125

Good day, you are on the right track, but firstly self.laps = 0 should just be laps = 0 This is a syntax error that will give you the error Bummer .....

You will then get a new error Did you adjust the fuel_remaining attribute? as self.length = ..... should be self.fuel_remaining = ....

Lastly, it will ask if you have incremented the laps. Here it should be self.laps = self.laps + 1
