Ok guys so I tested the motor alone without any gears and it seems very good no issues, I ran the truck with the problem for about 2 hours today and finally it broke. At least I know what my problem was now ! You know how the transmission have 3 gears well the middle one have no teeth anymore. but when I remover everything to get to the transmission I also realized that my shaft connecting the spur gear to the differential is bent a little bit. Turns out that about a month ago I melted the spur gear and everything in there by not tightening enough my nut, it overheated and melted the whole thing when I tried to removed everything was really stuck so i had to force it a bit. I probably bent the shaft a bit but never realized. Anyways I'll change those 2 gears and see what happens next. Thank you very much for your help guys, It's really appreciated !

Ya, I've never actually heard an esc making a grinding noise, figured it was something to with the drive train. Just enough stripped gears to have trouble starting but enough to grab when under way.

Glad you figured it out.
