No, your C rating has not increased and neither has your the maximum discharge rate. If you were to wire the two packs in parallel, the maximum discharge rate would double (assuming both packs are of the same capacity). Here is the formula for discharge rate.
Max Discharge Rate = C rating * Capacity (mah)/1000
Changing the voltage of a pack will not change the C rating.
