Those will be fine if they are true 30c. Always take care of your batteries and keep them under 130*F. To get them that hot it would take like 30/36 gearing. Your small change should be no problem for the batteries.
A pinion change is always more dramatic than a spur change. 1 pinion tooth ~ 3 spur teeth.
However do keep a close eye on your motor. Running the 2200 on 6s heats things up. Then if you add higher gearing, you could overheat things. As always... A fan, a temperature gun, and airflow through the body (cut holes) is recommended for 6s applications.
