Hi, can't work out whats wrong with my code for Object-Oriented Python. Thanks!
Not sure whats wrong, thanks!
class RaceCar: def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, laps, **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, laps): self.fuel_remaining -= (self.length * 0.125) self.laps += 1

You're decreasing self.fuel_remaining by self.length, but the Racecar object does not have a length attribute. you want to decrease by the length argument of the run_lap method. You also do not need to add laps as an argument, because self.laps is mean to increase by 1 for each time the method is run. The same for the init, self.laps is set to 0 so you don't need to pass it as an argument.
