Help with dial a death

Hi guys!
After unsuccessful search, now I'm second guessing myself...
My 930 had an in-cabin adjustable boost controller (dial a death). Mine has a large twist knob and a small gradded rotary selector.
can somebody explain me again what exactly does each one of them does?

Any pics? One was likely boost threshold, the other possibly timing. The other possibility is that the knob is a timed overboost controller: set your overboost psi with one knob and the duration the car can run overboost on the other.

These are wild stabs...

One is probably for brake bias. My DP935 has a Tilton brake bias lever to adjust for the larger wheels and tires on the car.

I can't add anything to this but I love the "dial a death" nickname
