When Rock Lee fights gaara and starts his Initial Lotus, how did Gaara escape the sand? He seems way too slow(it was only about a second and gaara was getting nailed)

My guess has always been that he did a substitution jutsu when Lee closed his eyes because of the pain and let his sand armor and let it take the Primary Lotus for him.

Can't he substitute even if Lee was looking at him?

Kakashi uses his Sharingan eye to watch the fight because of Lee's quick movements, and when Lee's kicking Gaara into the air, he grunts in pain and closes his eyes. That's when Gaara does it, and Kakashi explains it. Gai Sensei didn't know because he closed his eyes and started praying.

He also could have paused from the pain, even if it was for a split second.

He didn't look like he was making hand signs though, he had his arms in a guarding position

Nobody ever needed to make hand signs for the Substitution Jutsu. The earliest on that it was used was when Sasuke got Kakashi with kunai in the bell stealing test very early on in the story line, and all Kakashi did was stand there and read his book.

When the Demon Brothers also attacked Tazuna & Team 7, Kakashi got completely trapped by their chains and seemingly got ripped into pieces, but that was also a Substitution Jutsu. He never made any hand signs there either.

Then why couldn't Gaara use substitution when 4th gated Lee charged at him? (Substitution jutsu = broken imo ;))

Because then he couldn't see Lee because he was moving so fast and didn't know where Lee was going to attack from, let alone where he could dodge to.

i agree, lee was moving to fast for gaara to even try to do anything,

Probably not while he's being hit.

To answer your question more realistically, Sasuke and Gaara would not have battled if Lee would have killed him. Thus, Chidori would not be demonstrated.

Plot influence.

Honestly substitution jutsu does seem heavily plot influenced, most jutsu would have no use if was actually used more oftenly

Didn't you read what I just wrote? :(

Gaara could use the Substitution jutsu because when he was being kicked into the air, he paused for a second from the pain, and that's when Gaara did it.

When Lee came at him with four gates open, Gaara didn't have a chance to do anything.
