Elon Musk indicated that there is a puck at the base of the SpaceX Starship which takes the engine thrust load. The welds on the SN1 around the thrust puck had flaws. This is the flaw that ended up causing the SN1 to destroy itself during pressure loading of the fuel.
Theres a puck at the base that takes the engine thrust load. Dont shuck the puck!

Were stripping SN2 to bare minimum to test the thrust puck to dome weld under pressure, first with water, then at cryo. Hopefully, ready to test in a few days.

Is this the thrust puck you are speaking of @elonmusk? (Photo credit: @BocaChicaGal/@NASASpaceflight – Cleanup of SN1)
