to the best of my knowledge,
Molecular Dynamics is not the best way to study system stabilized by 
Pi-Pi or Pi-Cataion interaction.

However,in MD  people usually overpolarized C-C and C-H bonds to
increase the quadrupole interactions, and thus, mimic the Pi-Pi 


In conclusion (and in my opinion), you case use MD but be careful and 
test your Force field...
