Actually, if you look at how Tor works, the links are encrypted and tunneled together such that it is nearly impossible to trace a well formed route -- of course, assuming flash or a torrent client aren't giving up your IP within the data packets before it enters or after it exits the cloud.

You should think about learning more about how Tor works at http://torproject.org -- it's a lot more than a simple 3-hop proxy.
