I have a Gamepod and did a comprehensive research on gaming seats some time ago, so if you tell me what you are after I might be able to give you some advice. 

If you are happy with the central pillar (As in the Gamepod) the best cockpit by far (Price for what you get) was Bob Earl's one, but sadly they did recently an update and the price increased horribly and with no justification. If you can find one of the old ones it is however a great buy.

Yes same guy, he once got a request by I think it was either his nephew or his son to help him with a true racing position in a home made cockpit and he decided to build them when he saw the business opportunity Smile 

There are interviews with him about his cockpit and simracing vs real racing at Youtube.
