    Anybody know of any tweaks for TOR to improve its speed or make it only use US,CA,GB,UK,AU Nodes/IP's..?? Or to make it use a new node every other request for a website..?? Or to make it relay only through one node instead of multiple nodes..?? Or any other tweaks or scripts to greatly improve TOR's performance or functionality..??

    Try to find a 'Tor Controller' application. These are third-party front-end apps controlling your Tor node. I used to work with TorK (only for Linux), it has buttons to rebuild the 'virtual circuits' (change exit node), and also options to choose which country to select your exit node from. Maybe you can try to reduce the number of hops to improve speed a bit.
    Check out Vidalia, it's cross platform, however I haven't tried it yet. https://www.torproject.org/vidalia/

    The fastest Tor controller with embedded Tor is Cloakfish but it's not free.

    The clue on a fast tor connection is: shorter than 3 HOP paths and a good route
    Normal Tor has 100% of the goals in anonymity not in performance.
    Any performance gain has, at least in theory, anonymity losses. So the Tor developers don't really focus on that.

    A good way to manage TOR speed is to manually choose the end and start points of access.
    But after a lot of checking isn't worth the time and work.
    TOR is full of shitty perverted who watch and download shitty videos and steal bandwidth.
    Find a better alternative.

    I dont care about the security/anonymity part, I just need many USA IP that have decent speed..
    What can i do to make tor only use like 1 hop or only connect through one server/node instead of 3 or more..
    And also only use USA nodes..??
