I don't know what's wrong, an IDE runs it fine.

What am I missing here?

racecar.py
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,lenght):
        self.fuel_remaining -= lenght*0.125
        self.laps++

My friend you have a very simple issue your missing an argument your second line should be this.

def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, laps=0, **kwargs) 

your missing your laps variable buddy.

Hi! You have length spelled incorrectly in the run_lap method. Also, I tried it with self.laps += 1 instead of self.laps++. Here's an explanation on why not to use ++

Thanks guys, PyCharm fixed these "under the radar" mistakes for me when I hit run.
