Keep in mind too that it may take a while for the reinvented page to come back. Ditto for the site.
It's possible that some Panda factors at this point are hard wired into a continuously updating algo, but it's likely that most, if not all of Panda is still being recalibrated and adjusted periodically... so I would not make any judgements based on short term results.
Also, in my experience looking at Pandalized sites, I feel that most of those who built them are in denial about what the problems are and about how much work it's going to take to fix them.
I don't think that it's a fruitful approach, though, to think you can turn an stock automobile into a race car by removing the entire engine. You can strip down some parts for weight, but at a certain point you really need to beef up the essentials.
