Could someone help me with this code challenge

I dont see what i did wrong

racecar.py
class RaceCar:

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

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

You have an extra argument.

The instructions don't say that __init__ should take an argument for laps. You'll just set it to 0.

What I'm saying is that you should set it to 0. And not take it in as an argument.

I just want to let you know that i am on the third task not the second. I already completed the second task and need help on the third. The code above is what i wrote for the third task and its not working.

The changes I am suggesting will pass both task 2 and task 3.
