If you want to make Grav vehicles a little less than "absolutely the
best thing out there", you could declare that the grav's signature
(PSB the cause of that signature) makes them easier to spot, so
stealth and/or ECM is a little less effective on them. You either have
to build in better counter-measures, or they are a little easier to
see/hit than similarly sized wheeled or tracked vehicles.
