    Default wear out, implicate

    Hello. I have a question about a sentence that I donīt know if it is correct.
    I would like to know if the use of "implicate", "wear out", and " at an experimental stage" is correct in the next sentence. It is about formula one.

    "The technology of the engines, wings and tyres of the cars is very expensive and it is at an experimental stage continuously. This implicates that the cars wear out the tyres, spend too much fuel and they have to enter in the pits to refuel during the race."

    Thank you very much.

    Some is OK. Try this:

    The technology of the engines, wings and tyres of the cars is very expensive and is still at an experimental stage. This suggests that the cars wear out the tyres, expend too much fuel and need to enter the pits to refuel during the race.

    However, I don't understand how the experimental technology can suggest/implicate anything.

    "This means that...."? (Or just "So the tyres wear out... etc')
