Thrusters

I recently watched an interview, not that I follow much Telsa stuff or even have one and Elon mentioned thrusters. Anyway I can't seem to find anything on how they work but people assume they are going to be used like a rocket or one old thread on here said for downward traction(even I considered that) but I'm wondering if they will be used for weight transfer. Basically provide/help lift where needed and not be unsightly like other ideas would be. Whether it's to stop body roll or help breaking & accel I'm interested if anything has been revealed yet?

Actually I'm wondering if it is some kind of pneumatic ram setup, course it would need to be somewhat independent of the suspension. This would muffle it a bit and you wouldn't want burst into open air that could blow debris or cause harm to anyone standing close as you launch.
