Attempted exponential growth class of infinite growth

These are usually puffers that spit out copies of themselves, hence a replicator. These then crash into each other(eventually, anyway(referring to puffers spitting out themselves, but kind of the same for others)) and limit the growth to quadratic(usually, anyway). One is my signature:
x = 3, y = 3, rule = B3/S234y

Another was discovered by toroidalet:
x = 14, y = 5, rule = B3-q/S234y

The second one eventually goes really far left but not right.
Edit: Yet another found by toroidalet:
x = 4, y = 4, rule = B2n3-j5y/S234i

Here's another:
x = 5, y = 3, rule = B34j/S23
