Automatic transmission knob? (300E)

I have a 1986 300E. Someone told me if i stick my hand on top of the transmission that there is a knob that i can turn to adjust it. The guy said i can roast tires without doing work to the transmission. Right now the car is 100% fine, no problems whatso ever.
Im just very curious if his statement is true. Is there anyone out there that can confirm this guys statement? Also is there anything i should worry about in the future? It has 170k, runs great, no smoke. Very clean, recent tune up, no complaints. looking for suggestions as to any future problems that can happen and also that transmission knob. Thanks, Mike
