To prevent this, be sure to set the laps attribute inside of your init method (it doesn't have to be a keyword argument, though). If you already did it, just hit that "run" button and you're good to go!

class RaceCar:
    laps = 0
    def __init__(self, color, fuel_remaining, **kwargs):
        self.color = color
        self.fuel_remaining = fuel_remaining

        for attr, value in kwargs.items():
            setattr(self, attr,value)

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

This task is asking you to move where you establish "laps" into the "__init__" method, and do it more like you did with the color and fuel. But it still gets set to 0 instead of being passed in as an argument.
