So Elon said that they should have thrown the steel ball at the glass first, then hit the door with the sledge hammer. Citing that in doing the reverse, the pounding of the door with the sledgehammer cracked the glass slightly and that is what caused it to shatter. Just one small problem with that explanation, while I guess that is plausible for the driver’s door, what about the repeated breakage of the rear passenger window. Fran didn’t hit the rear door. Not even come close to it. I think Elon should have left it off as a gaffe and that is will be fixed before production starts.
