Fit a star nut

Hi, I inserted my star nut in the teerer tube at 1cm deep. Is it bad?

A friend is eating my brain saying that it is too deep. As far as I know, it should be between 0.8cm to 1.2cm.

So?

Thanks

As long as it is in straight and your top cap bolt is long enough to engage all the threads, you're good.

And, it isn't a carbon steerer.
