If one holds Rabbeinu Tam for Motzai Shabbos should one l’chatchela hold this zeman for a fast day?

Answer:

Many have the custom to be stringent for Motzai Shabbos to keep Rabeinu Tam, even though for other ares they are lenient for the earlier zman. This is because of the stringency of Shabbos which is a Biblical commandment and punishable by death. While there are those who are stringent in all areas, most who are stringent for Motzai Shabbos are lenient for the zman of the end of Rabbinic Fasts.
