I am in the process of doing the same thing for one of my websites. I already parked a new domain on the site to let it get indexed under that domain.
I do not plan on using 301's to redirect, because they pass PageRank, and I'm worried that Google will just look at it as the same website.
I too, am curious if anyone has recovered from panda / penguin that way though.
I was thinking about using 302's or some other means of redirecting the old site to the new one.
The thing I'm trying to eliminate here, is the penalty we are getting from a low quality backlink profile.
I have another site where I am sending out link removal requests in order to recover, but it is very time consuming. I'm hoping this alternative may have a chance to work.
