Python Object-Oriented Python Instant Objects Master Class

I keep getting the Error Couldn't find the class even though the class is defined at the very top.

I'm confused why it the class doesn't exist once I check the code for the second part of the challenge but it passed the first part of challenge

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

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

When the checker can not find the class, it means it has not been successfully define. This is cause by a syntax error.

:point_right: Looks like a comma is missing after the laps=0 parameter

Also, you might want to fix:

  • adding assignment to attribute laps
  • self.length is not an attribute, use length to refer to the method parameter

Good luck!! Post back if you need more help!

that worked thanks for the help!
