I'd also follow up with torservers.net and Moritz, he has been running exit nodes on a donation model for a long while and has more recent up to date experience with hosting companies world wide as well as a wiki with some guides to tweaking the speed of your higher capacity exit nodes. Also a better mailing list for this discussion might be tor-talk as there are a ton of tor exit node operators that respond. Fwiw when I ran an exit node my biggest issues were spam, although I had a few LE questions, and a visit from the FBI. With the FBI, as soon as I said tor they understood what was going on.
