I think Nick's comments summarized the current state of thinking. ExperimenTor and Shadow are the best Tor simulators to use for this project. The big missing pieces are:
- an automated framework for setting up experiments with slow Internet connections with ExperimenTor and Shadow, then collecting and summarizing results
- Tools for generating realistic link characteristics (delay and packet dropping), and for collecting data on the link properties found in particular locations
