What is the mistake?

What am I doing wrong?

class RaceCar:
    laps = 0

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

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

You're close, but there's two issues:

  • the first argument of any instance method should be self
  • laps needs the self. prefix just like fuel_remaining
