Nope.  The first thing that happens when a 146GB disk is replaced by a 300GB disk is that the 300GB disk is effectively formatted to 146GB.   So you will still end up with a 8x146GB array.

(Not only that, but even if above DID work,  you put your data at risk during each of the rebuilds).  Backup, rebuild, restore.
